That gt230 is abotu 100 Watts tops it seems.

If you look around, the common advice is the 500 Watt SINGLE +12V RAIL PSU.

Now all you need to do is to check out if the new PSU fits your case.

Maybe generic replacement

Open the PC case and locate the PSU and find the decal/sticker and raise the ante to better the outputs. What is your Acer model#? Once you note that and review it's support website specs, it provide maybe the PSU details. Then you shop for better PSU. As already stated to you, 500W is a good offering, just don't get the cheapest or settle too quickly. Make sure it has the amps/watts but also the connections you need.
