    Thanks in advance for taking the time to look into this. Is ATI Radeon HD 5850 compatible with my current PC and do I have the space to add it? Acer Aspire AX3910-U2032 is the current PC I am using. I know this is a fairly simple or stupid question but I just wanted to be sure before I buy it. Thank you again for your time.

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    Assuming this is your PC: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883103269

    Things you need to look at:

    1) Those specs look like a small form factor case, probably worth looking up the exact measurements of the card you are looking at and measuring it.

    2) It only has a 220w PSU, that will definately need to be upgraded also.

    Yes, that is the correct PC. Would I have the space then to upgrade the power supply and the graphics card mentioned in the above post?

    Also what size power supply would I need to upgrade to in order to make the upgrades providing they do fit?

    There is a very limited number of graphics cards that will fit into a slimline case. Your best bet for both these questions is to call Newegg and speak to a tech support person.

    You can search for 'low profile' graphics cards - I believe these will fit but check anyway.
