I cont play 3d games graphic card is there in acer aspire 4720z

* The system configuration of Acer Aspire 4720Z PC Notebook is :

160 GB or larger hard disk drive / 5-in-1 card reader / 512 MB or 1GB DDR2 533 MHz DIMM module / Intel Pentium dual-core mobile processor technology T2310 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.46, 533 MHz FSB), Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset.

* Your system have "Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset" graphics accelerator card embedded in the motherboard. Like most of the laptops/notebooks, there is no room for upgrading the graphics card in the motherboard!

* But you can upgrade the RAM upto 2 GB using two DDR2 DIMM memory modules.

* If you want to play 3D games with better performance, switch to Windows XP SP2 and upgrade the RAM!

* If you want to upgrade the memory (RAM), you can check this site :

Vga card


Unfortunately, you can NOT upgrade your net-book Acer Aspire One with a Graphics card. Some Acer Laptops have this feature, with a graphics card already installed or with a graphics card integrated into the system board.
If you want to have a laptop with higher graphics power, buy a laptop from Acer with the "G" ending, like the Acer Aspire 8940G for example.

Upgrading my Acer Aspire M1641 Desktop graphics card

The motherboard will support any PCI Express x16 or PCI Express 2.0 x16 video cards. Your main concern should be with the power supply since it is either a 300w or 250w.

Here is a pretty good choice for your price range:

Input your info here to see if you need a power supply upgrade.

A little money for system memory would be good if you have less than 1 Gig.
You can test it here:

If you are saving money by not buying a motherboard and want to spend it (which is what I would do), I would put the money into a the video card and power supply.
Like this:

And this:

I do not know the dimensions of the Aspire Case, so one thing to keep in mind is the dimensions of the card and the power supply. Make sure they will fit before buying.

If you start replacing motherboards and such, you might as well just go with a whole new system. A new motherboard, new CPU, new memory, new graphics, new power supply, fast hard drives, new case.

New graphics card

You can buy an Nvidia 8800GTS with 320MB for $180, and a 9600 woth 512MB for 130. If I were you I'd pick either of these, they're both good cards for a good price.

Upgrade needed?

Well, i took a look whaats on your Acer, you definetly need to upgrade your graphic card, and u need a lot more memory.
The graphic card u need is an APG 8X card, make sure that the new graphic card is a fast one coz your processor is a sempon, its like an intel celeron, not realy made for games.
The momory you have is 512mb, you have 2 slots and you can max have 2gb, i sugest you buy 2x1gb sticks, the memorytype is 184 Pin DIMMs 400MHz.

Here is the details for your pc:

Good luck

Playing high graphics games on acer aspire 4315

Check the requirements printed at the back of each game. this will tell you if the game runs. If some game is slow try disabling the antivirus while you run the game, remember to restart antivirus afterward.
Do not use software accelerator, majority of them are useless, some of them carries malaware and viruses.

Graphics card

Unlike desktops, notebook video cards are not usually modular or interchangeable, as the are integrated on mainboard.
On laptops usually you do not have a graphic card that mounts on a slot, like desktops PCI, or AGP video adapter.On your laptop the display adapter chipset is integrated on motherboard, and usually it is not possible or not convenient replacing motherboard to upgrade graphic adapter.

Acer aspire 3680

You do not have a "graphics card" in this laptop. There is a hard-wired graphics processor chip on the motherboard. Check your owners manual and you will find it listed. I don't have mine with me or could look it up for you. The short answer is that you cannot upgrade the graphic card.
