Graphic card for compaq 8ooo series

\015 Hi was wondering what graphics card i should get for my compaq 8000 series pc, mainly for games.\015

Answers :

I'm assuming it's a Compaq Presario 8000. The 8000 series has several sub-models such as the 8000T, 8000A, etc. The 8000A has several sub-sub-models.

The 8000T has an 8x AGP slot so you will be limited to either a PCI or AGP 8x video card.

You haven't stated your budget or what kind of games you play (solitaire or Word of Warcraft, etc...).

This card is the top rated AGP video card on NewEgg:
