Compatible Games For Acer Aspire 4330

Many laptops now are able laptops, which means that they are semi-powerful laptops. Many of them are now capable of playing good games. The main struggle with laptops however, lies mainly on the video graphic hardware that the laptop has.

We must understand that graphic hardware of laptops is built in and not upgradable. Thus, it is one of the main set backs of laptops especially if you are a gamer. Though some laptops where already equipped with powerful video graphic hardware like the Acer Aspire 8920G Gemstone, still most of Acer Aspire Series and most laptops have slower devices.

In addition to this, these built in video graphic hardware share with your RAM which makes it stressful for your laptop to process it. And if gaming will be abused, you may end up frying your own notebook.

Despite all these, there are some games that are not too stressful for your Acer Aspire 4330 that I would like to share to you.

If you have an Acer Aspire 4330 and you have a video graphic hardware model: Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M, you have to check the specs by clicking it.. It will lead you to the site that will tell you the capabilities of this video graphic hardware.

It has 10 pipelines unified, core speed is 533Mhz, Direct X 10, Shader 4.0. These capabilites are fair enough. But notice that it is has a “shared” memory which is very common for laptops.

For experience purposes, I have tried playing these games in my very own laptop Acer Aspire 4330:

  1. Starcraft – highly recommended

  2. NBA Live 2008 - I do not recommend this game for your laptop.

  3. Civilization 3

Haven't tried this games but these games are have been reported to run on this laptop:

  1. Warcraft

  2. Counter Strike (the older 1)

  3. Diablo

  4. etc. other games that has similar system requirements of these games.

Warning though: I really do not recommend that you play too much games with your laptop. But if you really want games, try the older version of games, the one that runs with windows 98. In this way, you will be able to at least have safety measures that your laptop will not be fried. Have a nice day!!!


I also do not warrant any failures of your laptop in playing these games. I will also not answer in damages of your hardware. Any attempt of playing games in your laptop is purely you own discretion and not mine.

A FileZilla Problem With Ubuntu

For all the FTP software that I was able to use, I would say that Filezilla is one of the best.

However, if you are using Filezilla in Ubuntu, there might be a little problem. Until now I haven’t solve this problem. If for example you are going to edit a php file, in windows, you can simply right click it and click edit.

However in ubuntu, when you right click it and click edit, you will be asked to set the editor, in which case, gedit is Ubuntu’s default text editor. And then you will be asked to browse the “exe” file command…. and my biggest problem is, where in the world will I look for that “exe” file command? I don’t know. Perhaps, you can try searching it and let me know about it.

Please do note that I don’t have any problem in using Filezilla in my windows because it sets the default file editor automatically, the Notepad.

Before I end, Filezilla by the way is TOTALLY FREE and FULLY FUNCTIONAL, NOT TRIAL, FTP Software.

If you have any answer, please let me know, post it below. Thanks!!!

Having a Class 2 Video Card; Nvidia GeForce 9650M GS with up to 1280 Turbo Cache (512MB of dedicated GDDR3 VRAM) or Nvidia GeForce 9500M GS with up to 1280 Turbo Cache (512MB of dedicated GDDR2 VRAM), the Acer Aspire 8920G Gemstone is compatible with some of the latest games. And I am sure that your interest of having this laptop will grow all the more, especially if you know that this laptop can somehow outdo your desktop. So if you are a gamer, this post is for you.

Here are the following games that has been tested for this laptop (based from the testing of my brother who own one):

  1. Call of Duty Modern Warfare

  2. Call of Duty World At War

  3. Company of Heroes

  4. Warcraft

  5. Starcraft

  6. Counter-Strike

I am sure that there are lot more games that are compatible with this heavy weight champion laptop. One of my favorite is Company of Heroes. This game requires a real video card and a huge amount of RAM. Therefore if this laptop can play this game, I am pretty sure that it won't fail your expectation as a gamer.

Please note however, that generally laptops are not designed for gaming purposes (though there are some). Abuse of your laptop may lead to system failures and in worst cases, frying your laptops.

Review On Acer Aspire 8920G Series

Let's go first with the basic specifications:
2.4GHz na dual core
18.4" Full HD, Acer Fine Cinecrystal
DDR2 667MHz upgradable to 4G using 2 soDIMM modules
Blue ray optical drive
Wireless WiFi Link 4965 AGN Network Connection
Blue tooth
Nvidia GeForce 9650M GS with up to 1280 Turbo Cache (512MB of dedicated GDDR3 VRAM) or Nvidia GeForce 9500M GS with up to 1280 Turbo Cache (512MB of dedicated GDDR2 VRAM)
And it is 4.1kg or 9.04 lbs.

This giant Laptop was designed for Vista, but then again, so far, there is no exemption to the compatability of Ubuntu Linux to laptops like this.

This laptop is obviously heavy but this one is currently one of the "top of the line" laptops as this post is being published. I would say that this is the upcoming cheap laptops maybe after 2 years.

This laptop is also designed for gamers having 2G default DDR2 RAM, it can still be upgraded up to 4G plus a category 2 graphic support. Due to its heavy weight and high end specs, this can be a good replacement to any ordinary existing desktop computers.

It also possess an HD screen combined with the Blue Ray optical drive especially designed for extraordinary cinematic experience.

Acer Aspire 8920G Series is not just a "Gemstone" its a "Gemrock" because of its weight, and its high-end specs.
