This card is as fast as the GTS 250/9800GTX+ but is quite a bit cheaper.

Newegg.ca - HIS Hightech H485FN512P Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Or if you can afford to spend a little more the HD 4870 is faster than all of the other cards mentioned.

Newegg.ca - POWERCOLOR AX4870 512MD5 Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

You will probably need a new case since the acer one is most likely micro atx which means a 790gx won't fit.
