The AX3475 ships with semi decent ram, a pretty meh cpu, and the atrocious amd radeon hd 7350. The computer is part of Acers slimline series and is currently equipped with a generic 220 psu (cant even be sure of the brand).

I've recently started looking around at options, and decided that I would like to upgrade to these.

Obviously because of my slimline case I'm limited to what I can put in. This seemed like a pretty logical upgrade for quite cheap. I'm also aware of the dimensions of the card (especially height wise) and am prepared to make...errr...."Modifications" to my case to accommodate the increased size. I also would buy a low profile bracket.

My PROBLEM is the lack of specs for the mainboard in this beast. I've managed to find the model/chipset name - but as theres multiple versions of it (and this is an original stock prebuilt) its difficult to locate my actual board. Heres the info I pulled out of ACERS support chat -
"The part number for motherboard is: DB.SKJ11.001
MB KIT AX3475 AMD A75 REALTEK 8111FA ACER LOGO Y W/O 1394 V1.0 LF DTX"

I apologize for the long winded nature of this thread and my general lack of computer knowledge, I would appreciate if anyone could tell me if this upgrade I'm planning is possible. Thanks in advance for reading/replying!

Additional Notes - I was able to find this site Acer original motherboard - AC55840 - $194.95 US : Notebook Solutions, Parts, Service & Support - which visually matches and shares the exact same model/ref number. This isn't much information - especially without specs- but if it helps it helps. Thanks again.

All motherboards are compatible with all GPU, PCI-E wise.

The upgrade will work.
