Hello - my son would like to upgrade the graphics card for his Aspire X 1430G desktop. His operating system is Windows 7. Here is his question - how does he find out if a graphics card he wants to buy is compatible with his computer? He has tried to find the user manual with all the PC specs, but cannot. Does anyone know how he can find out which graphics card will fit in his computer?
Thank you! Catherine M.
