I know nothing about the software in question, but it does appear to offer a few 3D effects -- though probably not anything that is taxing the existing system. Nevertheless, while it may not be particuarly GPU-accelerated per se, the stock IGP in that Acer Aspire will be using system memory to do its work. Just switching to a discrete GPU with its own memory may show some improvements when simply scrolling around in huge files -- especially if the system in question is short on RAM to begin with. How much memory do you have? And what OS (XP/Vista/7, 32 or 64bit)?cheesyking wrote:I do wonder how much a new graphics card will help with what you're doing. The system requirements for PagePlus only state "3D-accelerated graphics card with DirectX™ 9 (or above) or OpenGL® support" which your PC has already got (nvidia 9200 by the looks of it). I doubt the software you list is actually passing off any of the processing to the video card so all the card is doing is displaying picture on the screen and I can't see the upgrade making any difference to that.
