Compatible video cards for E661GXM

Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Barb Holder.

Your Acer computer supports all graphics cards that use the AGPX8 Expansion slot.

The AGPX8 expansion slot is identified as it has a clip at one end of the slot.
Nvidia made graphics cards around the 6600GT that feature the AGPX8 slot.

All you need to do is find a graphics card that supports AGPX8.

Take care!

I have an acer m5802 what is the best video card I can upgrade to. Thank.

Acer Aspire M5802?

Let's look at the specs;

A) Intel Core2 Duo processor, or Intel Core2 Quad processor.

B) Intel G43 Express motherboard chipset.

C) PCI-Express graphics expansion slot that is the 2.0 version

D) 500 Watt Power Supply

Just about any Ol' graphics card you desire. As long as a 500 Watt power supply is enough power, the sky's the limit.

Now,......are we talking the BEST?

There's a lot of pro's and con's whether everyone will agree with my choice, but I'll explain why I chose this graphics card.


A) 1GB of GDDR5 graphics ram memory

B) 256-bit interface

C) 336 Stream Processors

D) The Core Clock can run up to 763MHz.

E) The Memory Clock can run up to 3800MegaHertz

F) The Shader Clock can run up to 1526MHz.

G) DirectX 11

If you want to see characters sweat on a 30 inch or better monitor, this baby will do it easily.
Frame rate lag? Bahahahahahaha! Nope!

Plus the price. Best Bang for the Buck, IMHO.

Just make sure you have two slots available side by side. This card uses two slots in width.
Length? Your computer case is 180MM wide, 443mm long, and 373MM tall.

(That's 7.08661 inches wide by 17.4409 inches long by 14.6850 inches tall.
Or 7 and 7/8ths inches wide by 17 and 7/16ths inches long by 14 and 11/16ths tall )

The graphics card fits down the length of the computer. It is 8 and 1/4 inches long, (8.25),
4 and 3/8ths tall, approximately. (4.376)

Make sure you have at least 2GB's of ram memory though.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

On the Acer Aspire 5100 I believe you have A RAdeon xpress graphics card that shares memory with the system RAM the only way to boost the graphics score is to increase the can buy it from the Acer website or is very good and has its own scan and will recommend
the amount of RAM for your needs

Is it possible to upgrade graphics card on the acer aspire 5315.

This computer does not seem to have a dedicated graphics card rather onboard graphics chip on the motherboard so no you cannot upgrade unless you go for a usb or cardbus solution but those are not geared for gaming, rather productivity like dual or quad monitor setups.

You can read more on this thread if you like.

Pci slot error

I have the same problem with an Aspire 5100.
I can eliminate any problems with the software, as the problem exist with the hard drive renoved.
It appears after the 'Acer' splash screen and fails as part of the POST.
After reading through various posts I suspect the broadcom wirless card or LAN has failed at board level.
I will try removing them and try again.
Will post back with results.

Graphic card for acer aspire 1641

HI Denis,

Unfortunately you cannot change the video card an your laptop, you see its built into the motherboard. There are some high end laptops that use a MXM? slotthat it is possible to change cards and even then its still iffy.
the only real hardware changes you can make to your laptop are the battery, the RAM, and the hardrive.

My Acer aspire 5100

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
