Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop
Hi, i recently bought an Acer Aspire base unit, it has a 1.8ghz dual core cpu, 1gb of RAM, on board sis mirage 3 graphics etc, a link to its exact spec can be found at http://www.ebuyer.com/product/138612/show_product_specifications?spectype=extended I am aware that this is a very basic PC but i was wondering if you could tell me what would be a suitable graphics card for a system such as this as i would like to play games, and also if i am able to upgrade the CPU and to what type spec etc, from my very limited knowledge on this subject i know this is dependant on the motherboard, many thanks, Michael
The problem is that you can't just Upgrade the video card in a portable like you can a desktop system.
Upgrading the video would require a new motherboard with discrete graphics. VERY few portable system have upgradeable video without major cost (Usually cheaper to sell system and buy one configured as you need it) which is my recommendation if that system will not perform as you desire.
Generally, upgrades on portrable systems are limited to MEMORY, HARD DRIVES and plug in components like wireless cards, modems etc.
