Acer Z5610 - upgrade help please?

  Spondy12 20:46 27 Dec 2012

I have installed 8.2 GB of ram. I need to upgrade the graphics card and CPU - where do I start?

I have:

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500/5100 Series Realtek High Definition Audio

This is an 'all in one' monitor with the PC built into it. Someone recommended the nVidia GTS 250 but I am not sure where to start???

Most reviews that I have read state that there is no scope for upgrades. In many ways it is similar to a laptop where upgrading the CPU and graphics is generally not on.

Many thanks for the quick reply

I was tempted to concur with Woolwell. My understanding is that all-in-ones like you have are not able to be upgraded. However, I thought I'd Google it and...

This looks like it's not for the faint-hearted.

Not sure about upgrading the CPU - but what you've got seems good to me...
