    Thanks for the answers so far. Hopefully I have found the info you want: System is E-System Ei 314, with a Foxconn RC4107MA-RS2H motherboard.

    http://www.techstore.co.uk/detail_116644... this is the graphics card I am looking at. Obviously I am open to all advice.

Usually the manufacturer's site will have some sort of list, but really, you can generally figure it out for yourself. First, find out what kind of graphics card slot your motherboard has. If it is relatively new, it will probably have PCIe (other options are AGP or just PCI). Next, find out how much power the card you want will draw, and figure out if your Power Supply Unit (PSU) will have enough juice to run it. If you have a card in mind, just post a link to the card, and one to your system (or if you built it yourself, to the site for your motherboard and PSU), and I'll do the math :)

But honestly, short of slot type and power supply, there isn't a whole lot that will actually prevent you from choosing whichever card you want.

    Checked both, and you should have no problem with that. The only possible issue is power supply, but that card will probably be fine, as it doesn't look like it will draw a huge amount of power. Have fun!

Looking to upgrade my graphics card...wondering will this be supported on my Acer Aspire M5200? And if not which would be the best to choose for it.. ty


Yes it will but it is recommended that you upgrade to atleast 128MB more so if you are into gaming. If you can get me the make and model of your chipset I can suggest a compatible 128MB card.

VGA ONLY ONBOARD


This is the driver for your card:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x86_96.85_2.html
It seems to be compatable up to Windows Vista so, it may, or, may not be compatable with Windows 7. If you are trying to get a driver for Windows Vista or earlier, this should work for you. Make sure you uninstall any prior driver before downloading this. If you have Windows 7 or are thinking about getting it, you can run the upgrade advisor here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/upgrade-advisor
to see if your system and card are compatable with Windows 7.

I want to upgrade my graphic card


That video card won't work on your system board. The video card requires a PCI-E expansion slot, but the system board has an AGP slot. You'll need to look for an AGP video card. I tried looking on the site you gave for the card you were considering and they don't seem to have any AGP type cards, so you will need to shop around some more.
