According to this you have a 250w psu. You will need to upgrade it with whatever card you pick. If you are not doing any gaming then that 9400 GT will be fine. Also a good 350-400w psu from corsair, seasonic, pc power & cooling or antec. chrissom January 20, 2010 8:31:53 PM that's fantastic, might have a look for one thats a bit better for gaming, would only be very occasionally for red alert 3 or the likes but will definitely upgrade the psu too, cheers mate Related resources Acer EM61SM/EM61PM Model= E380 CPU/GPU Upgrade - Forum Acer EM61SM/EM61PM GPU Upgrade. - Forum Acer em61sm/em61pm drivers - Forum Acer EM61SM/EM61PM (Socket M2 ) Measurments? - Forum Acer EM61SM/EM61PM what ram upgrade? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
