  1. before making any GPU upgrade you might have to replace your PSU first.

    ok in the tower it says 220-240 watts
  3. The problem is that slim case. Unless you can find a more powerful PSU your upgrade options will be savagely limited.
    Even so, this is the most powerful slimline card around:

    It's no Crysis crusher but will play well enough at moderate resolutions.

    The only Graphics card that you can safely use with Acer Aspire X3810 is the Geforce 220 GT. (This info comes directly from the manual for that PC).
