if you have a old PC then upgrading the graphics card alone will not get your computer up to date to play 2011 games, you might need to buy a whole new 2011 computer. Go online and do a system requirement test of the game you are willing to download or buy and play.
Most Acer laptop graphics cards are not upgradeable. In fact most laptop graphics cards are not upgradeable in general.

graphic cards usually are made to a DirectX level the most up to date cards are at DirectX 11
check your game and see what direct X level it requires. it may well be that you can download and install direct x to the level of the game, if the graphic card you have will accept it.
if not the next steps could be expensive, if you are looking to buy an new pc soon anyway then i would not bother to buy a new graphic card, then better a new pc with a decent graphic card installed. if not you have to be aware of the upgrade.
firstly you have to have a power supply that can give power to the new graphics card, if you opt for PCI express these usually have a secondar power connector and your power supply will need to have the connector for this.
also *********** board will have to have a slot that accepts your new graphics card.
check with your computer store to ensure you get the right one. and that your pc will work with it ok.
Depending on the laptop, the manufacturer often has two or three choices on the video card. Before purchasing you can make the choice. If you have already purchased, you can upgrade to another video card as long as the video card is not integrated on the motherboard. Check the laptop specifications online and see if the manufacturer offers the upgrade before purchase.
