    I have an acer aspire xc - 330 with a radeon r3 graphics card, is it possible for me to upgrade this card. Im not sure if the PC is capable of switching graphics cards.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    What's the exact SNID number and serial number of your Acer Aspire XC-330 series desktop?

    According to those numbers, you appear to have THIS Acer Aspire XC-330 (DT.B9DEK.001) desktop which came with Windows 10 home 64-bit pre-installed in it.

    It appears it came with these hardware specs:
    AMD A6-9220 2.50 GHz dual core processor
    AMD Radeon R5 integrated graphics
    4 GB of DDR4-2400 RAM
    65W external power supply

    It appears its motherboard has a PCI Express x16 slot for adding a dedicated graphic card.
    You can confirm that by removing its panel and looking inside.

    This is a budget desktop which sells brand new for about $350.00 and is designed for normal use.
    Its processor and other hardware is too weak for gaming, so if that's your intent for adding a dedicated graphic card, you're wasting your time and money.
