You can verify with Acer support but my guess is that there is no way to change the graphics card.

If you mean the black plastic piece held on with two screws? They probably use the same housing for a different model that does have something there.

If you did manage to upgrade the graphics card, the power supply is only 220W.

Got the same machine (except my Pci-e 1x slot is occupied by a tv tuner) and was wondering the same thing.

I just pulled it apart to swap hard drives.

There are 4 sata slots, but only 2 sata power cables so I ran the sata cables externally and hooked 2 additional SSDs to a separate power supply. Works a treat.


As for upgrading the gfx card. I think it can be done, but would require cutting an internal aluminium cover and the plastic back cover, AND upgrading the power supply, which would probably also have to be come external. If you don't mind your "all in one" looking like frankenstein give it a go - what's the worst that can happen???
