    Default Computer Graphics Help Please

    I have an Acer Aspire x3400g and it has the GeForce 9200 in it. It's that pesky slimline design typical of welfare walmart computers. My question is does anyone know what's the best card I can put in it to make Rift actually run? Many thanks

    Didn't read it all the way through, but that search function works like magic! Your answer may be here.

    Here is a blurb from Acer's site for various cards that could have come in that system

    I would maybe get a an ATI 5570 as it looks like you wouldn't be able to go much more with a 220W power supply that comes with the system. Just make sure you buy the card from somewhere where you can take it back if it dosen't work

    Well the problem is with the 220w power supply I don't see many cards <ones on the list included> that will actually work with the power supply. They all want like 300w or something.
