If these are still the computer specs that you have listed, you should do a couple of things before you install a video card.

Windows XP SP2 needs to be upgraded to SP3.

Another 1 GB of RAM needs to be added.

According to the support site for the Acer Aspire M1610 desktop, it comes with a 250W power supply.

The system requirements for the NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS PCI-E 512 MB video card is a power supply of 300W or greater.

I'm using that same video card in a desktop with a 250W power supply, and it works fine.

I'm not a gamer though - which is probably your reason for wanting to install it.
