I have an Acer Aspire x1200:
http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/de...1200sp2.shtml#

and I was wondering if there is any way I could upgrade the power and video card to a better one. If not I am also getting a computer that a family member doesn't use any more and it was custom built with a Asrock motherboard, 4 gigs of memory, dual core 5200 or close to it, 400 watt power i think, and a Radeon x1900 GT graphics card. What would be a good graphics card to upgrade to?

right off the bat I can tell you have a dual core amd X2 i'd recommend you get amd x4 965 black edition. Your memory is dd2 i'd recommend a dd3. and you power supply watt is ridiculously weak but thats very common when buying a prebuilt computer

edit- i don't care for grammar

Is this for the acer? Could you post links and would the components fit in the case?
