    Hello,

     

    1. The PSU is 220W
    2. Is your desktop already equipped with a graphic board?
    3. The Aspire X1920 series is shipped with HD6450 or GT405 Low Profil with a memory amount of 512MB or 1Gb.

    No it does not have an additional graphics car only an integrated graphics card, so what graphics card are compatible?

    You could install e.g. Nvidia GT 710 or GT 720. These are entry level graphic boards

    MSI GT 710 1GD3 LP

    Gigabyte GV-N720D3-1GL

    Hello,

     

    Yes but look for a model with a cooling fan because IIRC, Aspire X1920 is shipped witout case fan.

    According to the Nvidia specifications:

    GT 710: 19 Watts

    GT 720: 23 Watts

    GT 730: 23 Watts (only this model: DDR3 64-bit)

    So i can buy this right now with no problems or i have to buy a fan?

     

    PS : I dont want to buy any extra items such as a fan, Im only gonna play a game by the name of Counter Strike Global Offensive.

     

    I just want a graphics card that could run on my old x1920 to play CSGO so thats why i dont want to invest in a fan or other items other than the graphics card.

    Does the model im going to buy come with a cooling fan or i need to purchase an extra one>

    Hello,

     

    The graphic board stated in your previous message is a silent graphic board. You can't use it with your desktop since it has no case fan (overheating) and no space to install one. As I didn't find a GT 730 DDR3 64-bit with a GPU fan integrated, I suggest you to buy one of the models that I stated. FYI, there are models of GT 710 or 720 with 2Gb of memory.

    Could you give me the first ten characters of the computer serial number (S/N)? Only the first ten.

    Hello,

     

    Sorry for the delay.

    It is compatible. No power supply connector needed.

    Uninstall the current graphic driver. Shut down your computer after rebooting. Unplug the power cable and all external devices. Wait few minute. "Plug" the graphic board in your motherboard. Restart your computer and install the new graphic driver.

     

    Should i connect my vga to the graphics card slot or the motherboard slot?

    To the graphic board slot.
