ive got an acer aspire x3400 (nothing has been changed) and i have been looking around for a graphics card.
i have read on many website that an ati radeon hd5450 1gb will fit and work in my computer, i am just wondering if that is correct?

It will fit as long as it's:

A) Low profile/single slot
B) Low profile ready and you're not using the PCI-Ex1 slot.
C) Low profile ready and you plan to disconnect the VGA D-Sub port.

It's a low end card that should run on the 220 watt PSU.

In case anyone has the same problems I found... I tried a Radeon HD 5450 card in my Acer x3400 but the driver couldn't run because of a "code 43" error. It would only work with the generic VGA drivers.

I tried all kinds of things, but eventually gave up and bought a GeForce 210 card, and that one runs fine with the drivers downloaded from Windows Update.
