I have an Acer Aspire X3812 with Q8300 quad-core processor, which the specs for says it has a PCI Express 16x Graphic expansion slot for a choice of approved ATI and nVidia graphic cards. I have no idea what graphics card to get to put in it as i need a more powerful one for some new games!! Pls could you help suggest some graphics cards for it!?


Answers :

Since you have this high end specs for your computer and you only need a video card that can make it more powerful , you can get this graphics card ATi 4770\015\012or NVIDIA 9800GT then you can surely play all\015\012games in the world in MAX settings.
Of course I do not know how much you want to spend. You can spend from $30 to $500. This is an outstanding card for $75. With 1 GB of Ram it will probably be all you will need.\015\012http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5286095&sku=P450-0220\015\012
