I'm looking at a new graphics card
( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BZB0HDS/ref=olp_pro... )
I'm wondering if it's compatible with my computer.

Manufacturer: Acer
Model: Aspire M3470
Processor: AMD A8-3800 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 2.40ghz
Installed Memory(RAM): 10.0 Gb
System type: 64-bit Operation System
Screen Resolution: 1920x1080

Is this the information you need?

It will depend on the Wattage of your Power Supply. How many watts is the power supply you have in the PC now? Yes the card can work in your PC but if the power supply is to weak you will need to change it out for a more powerful one.

EDIT: found this on your PC. http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/acer-aspire-m3470-uc30...

According to this your PSU is a 300W. You will need to change the Power Supply for that card to work in your PC.

not sure your psu will be up to it

far as i can see you have a 300w psu

thats a 110w card and evga recommend a 400w psu

you also may be better with and amd card

not up on amd stuff but think you can combine the onboard gpu and a discrete amd card for better graphics

performance
