Hi, i have an aspire m3970 and i want to upgrade my gpu. Is the rx 580 sapphire nitro compatible with my m3970 ? Because i googled and i read about bios or something. Sorry i'm new to pc, so i don't really know about this stuff.
 
update the latest BIOS from the Acer support homepage if available

it is compatible regarding to this database, where it has been running successfully with various cards:

Most likely the PSU has to be updated as well, if the power cables are not there for the new card. Don´t use adapters!
for this card you will need one 6-pin and one 8-pin PCIe cable on the PSU.
