    Acer SA80 Upgrade

    Yes i know it is a piece of junk and is very old but i was wondering how viaable/expensive it would be to upgrade the graphics card to something decent. Also what other gear would i need to upgrade in order to not fry my computer.

    Thanks!

    i would recommend this. Its not too expensive and would keep your CPU from bottlenecking the video card. This is about as good as your going to get with your current system without upgrading to a whole new platform.
