What are the Components of a PC?
graphics processing unit (video card) (gpu) you can either get ones that are integrated onto the motherboard (I wouldn't bother with integrated) or a graphics card (which are better for gaming). The two main competitors are Geforce and Radeon motherboard (all the other components need to be compatible with the motherboard as they all get placed on it). central processing unit (cpu) [the brains of the computer] power supply unit (psu) memory RAM - the more RAM you have the faster/better your computer will be able to handle multitasking i.e. running multiple programs. HDD or SSD (more expensive for less but runs much faster than HDD) which is storage Basically, make sure that all the acronyms match.

Can you change your laptops graphics card for a new one if you have an Acer aspire 3690?
Probably not. Laptop video cards are built in to the motherboard. The entire laptop is usually built around the motherboard and it probably wouldn't be worth the effort to try to replace it. If you're after a specific graphics card you would be better off building a PC from scratch. Many web sites will sell you everything you need and that gives you the flexibility to mix/match whatever you want.

Why the case and power supply must match the motherboard?
Asked in Motherboards, Graphics Cards
What graphics cards are compatible with my motherboard which is a GA-78LMT-S2?
This board has a PCI Express Graphic 2.0 x16 slot on it, so your best match is a graphics card that uses the same standard. However, be aware that PCI Express 3.0 x16 cards are backward compatible with the 2.0 slot on your motherboard, so you can use any card that is on the market currently. Your primary concerns then become only whether you have the room in your case to fit your new card and, if you get a modern, high-end card, whether you have the wattage capacity in your current power supply to handle it. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions or would like more specific guidance, feel free to drop me a line. I am glad to do what I can and, if you happen to be in the northeast Kansas area, provide you professional assistance through my store.
I have a DDR1 RAM in my PC and want to buy a graphics card Can I go for a DDR2 graphics card or should the RAM type in the graphics card match the RAM in the main memory of the PC?
Nope it doesn't matter what kind of ram you have in your graphics card as they are used for different things What does matter is what type of slots your computer has. Mine, for example, has slots only for PCI cards and I must buy PCI. You can find out what type of slots your computer has by calling TigerDirect. Start with what type of graphics card your computer can use.
