Is this your PC?

I'm not even sure there's room to put a standard sized GPU in that case just based on that picture. Also your CPU is going to limit your overall performance even if you do get a higher end card in there.

Here's the service manual for the Acer x3300 & X5300 desktops.

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/Manuals/acer/2010/Ser...

The picture given for "Internal Components" (Page 14) leads me to believe you can't really put much of anything in there. Looks like you'd have to remove the CD/DVD drive just to get to the PCI-E slot.

Yeah that's a tough one. I come across this a lot with people who have either hand me down PC's or PC's that were just bought for them (not with gaming specifically in mind usually).

I usually recommend either saving up for a 350-400 dollar cheapy computer that you can at least have some more room in, or buy a new case, new psu, and then a new video card. But you're only as fast as your slowest part, so if your CPU is going to be a limiting factor as Jerreece stated, then I wouldn't even bother buying new parts.

Sorry bud! You can try this from ibuypower for $500 bucks:

i do not think so that the cpu is limiting factor. quad core 2.8 GHz is not limiting factor for me

It's not a bad cpu. I have 630 just like you. Mine has windows experience score is actually higher than my gpu (HD4850): 7.2 vs. 7.0. I wouldn't hope to get even a decent gpu for gaming with a slim case and psu. like yours. Your psu is mediocre, to be honest.

You could consider whether an ATI HD5570 low profile card might fit into your case. It's definitely not a gaming GPU, but it would potentially fit. (Keep in mind, the GT120 and GT100 cards from nVidia aren't really gaming cards either!!)

Low Profile GPUs are designed for low heat output and low power use. They're designed more for Home Theater PCs than game play systems.

Here's a benchmark/review of the HD5570 to give you an idea of what to expect:

Just get an HD5450 if you aren't going to be gaming. You can use it on an Nvidia motherboard so don't worry about that.

HD5450 it is much better than my integrated geforce 9200.can u write down all specification like memory etc? thnx
May 15, 2010 10:25:58 PM


Radeon HD 5450 (single GPU)

* The card requires you to have a 300 Watt power supply unit at minimum if you use it in a mainstream system. That power supply needs to have (in total accumulated) at least 30 Amps available on the +12 volts rails.

i need something for 220w psu

Manufacturers suggestions should always be ignored, they do not represent reality. The HD5450 uses 13w max;
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Sapphire/HD_5450/28....
If your PSU cannot handle that card then it cannot handle any card at all.


so i gonna try it. just last question.can u suggest concrete model how much memory and low profile bracket in pack?

and what about the 5570 please. what psu for 5570?
May 15, 2010 10:39:35 PM

i can see that 5570 has max power cons 18w on the same website as yout tip.
May 15, 2010 10:42:48 PM

sorry max 50w

Yeah, the HD5570 is very low power for a gaming card but it still may be asking too much of a 220w. You don't need a gaming card from what you said anyway. The HD5450 will do you just fine for non-gaming purposes. This would be a good choice;

and l;ast question it there option for ddr3 on the card?

That should be fine. 1GB of memory on a card like this is a marketing gimmick and in reality entirely useless. A card of this caliber(or even significantly better ones) cannot effectively use more than 512mb.
On a side note;
Have you actually tried your onboard graphics before deciding it needs to be replaced?
