The AGP card doesn't fit? OK...what's the Acer Aspire model number? It should be labeled, on either the side panel, or the front.

After some googling, it looks like you that black slot is a PCIe slot. So you won't be able to use that X700.

yeah i got really bad luck when buying comps, i always get the onboards, because i never check the comps specs and graphic settings before i buy, and since i play games, its screws me over. then again using an Acer for gaming isnt always a bright idea to start with =P
