XC-1760 graphics upgrade

Roobious Member Posts: 2 New User

There was a discussion regarding this already posted. However the information confused me a little, it sounded like it said you can.. but you can’t!?

I have the XC-1760, I believe it has a 180w PSU. Is it possible to install/upgrade the graphics? So far i’ve only upgraded the ram to 24Gb. Haven't done anything else to it.

but if it is possible? What do i need? The other discussion sounded like i may have to upgrade the PSU? Is this easily doable if i need to?

and if I do get as far as being able to shop around for a graphics card? What kind of requirements does it need to fit? (Suggestions/links welcome)

Thank you to anyone that can help in advance!

fyi- this is what i have - https://www.acer.com/gb-en/desktops-and-all-in-ones/aspire-classic-desktops/aspire-xc/pdp/DT.BHWEK.00Q
