Honestly even after that the CPU and RAM are so slow that it bottlenecks the speed anyway. I went out and spent about 600 bucks building a 6 core AMD processor with 8 gigs RAM and a Solid State Drive on a ASUS board all in a new case... I already had a Graphics card and power supply so all in all about 800 bucks or so for a sweet set up that runs the game on max graphics. The Acer X 1200 will hold up for a while with a new Graphic Card and PS... but like I said you need to physically alter the case and it runs very hot with more stuff crammed in it, so expect a lot of crashes and shorter lifespan of the hard drive / CPU.
Then do you think that it will run games like skyrim and dragon age 1&2 with at least console graphics?
