so Many Questions QQQQ
You need to get the specs for the computer, get the specs for the graphics card and call fyrs\

Or Call frys tell them what computer you have and what video card and ask them. could you call your computer manufacturer and ask them?

Dell was one of the last to do that sort of thing that I know of, and even they have stopped doing that a few years ago and just use standard ATX (or mATX depending on case size) power supplies.

Most PSU these days will fit your configuration. Take the measurement of the current PSU you have in the acer and check on line at newegg, where you can compare the size.

Fry's sells some decent PSUs, Corsair, Antec, OCZ, etc. Watch out though and check because some of the sales people at Fry's don't know what they're doing... duh! I would get a dept. supervisor or dept. manager to help you. They usually have a pretty good idea which ones are good buys. Also, remember that the better quality PSUs will feel heavier than the cheap ones. That's because they use better quality transformers and heat sinks. You might consider a modular one, since then you'll only have to use the cables you need and not have the "rats nest" of extra cables cluttering up your case.

Plan on spending at least $60-70 dollars, many times Frys will have them on sale too. DON'T GET ONE with a "Return Sticker" on it.

Good Luck!

You should take a look at the Corsair tx750. Those power supplies aren't exactly futureproof and what if you wanted to go Crossfire in the near future?

Any psu should work due to the ATX standards, and some of the newer psu's have the 20/24 pin for the board (4pins can be removed). And most GFX cards should come with 6pin adapters, at least every one I have found that requires one comes with them... I dunno I would think it's weird if they didn't because I haven't seen a psu that comes with the 6pin.... Just for the purpose that it shouldn't be their responsibility it should be the company that makes your gfx card. Either way all ATX psu's work on ATX standard board, so as long as the MB your running is ATX standard (which if it's pre-built it should be) than most psu's on the market run on it. ATX has been standard for years now. But it would be helpfull if you posted the MB model, PSU model you currently have

Radeon HD 4870 X2 and 4890 Crossfire?
