Looking to upgrade Acer desktop graphics card.

Yes it will do the trick for you. But remember you can get 512meg and 1gig AGP, so shop around

You also need to make sure the card will physically fit in the case - open it up and see how much room you have

Watse of time. The motherboard has: Expansion Slots 3 PCI v2.2 slots
1 AGP 8X for graphics card
You won't find any decent gaming capable cards now for that. They are all PCI-e now. Gaming hardware lasts at maximum 2 years.

They don't want to game though, and that 6200 should run Aero, Flash etc just fine

Rubbish, I have LAN box's with much older hardware than 2 years that play games perfectly fine. Dont get into thinking you have to get the latest and greatest to play games because you dont, unless you want to push the graphical boundaries there are few games that demand anything more than a 8800 GT and a Core 2 Duo.

vtecintegra, Feb 29, 3:17am
I don't agree with that either - my Core2 Duo with GTX275 feels pushed these days

then lower your resolution.

Most games run fine on my lan box at medium detail. I've only ever come across one that does not work and that's Crysis.

vtecintegra, Feb 29, 3:39am
Even bumping the resolution and quality down something like Skyrim isn't exactly a smooth experience. Plus GPU scaling looks pretty bad compared to the native resolution on an LCD monitor (obviously in-monitor scaling looks much worse again)

Skyrim i have played on my lan box and it is a big difference coming from my main gaming pc, but if i hadnt come from that, i probably wouldnt know any better - it's certainly not the best gfx, but it's perfectly playable when you dial the settings down.

People have different tolerances for poor game performance.

ropes2, Feb 29, 4:13am
I agree, the average punter would not notice.

Hence when you are used to playing high detail, then you want to keep up.

LOL, I upgraded just my graphics cards from 2x GTX280s to 2x GTX560Ti's and I only got around ~10fps more on dx9 games, ~50fps more on dx10 and almost doubled on dx11.

Yes that card will be ok.I see the CPU is either an Athlon Duo core or Sempron.If its Sempron, it will only make a small difference but if its the Duo core will speed it up heaps.
