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:

Well i have a compaq presario sr1603wm and basically i was going to buy a new computer but thats like 600 bucks so i was wondering... what kinds of graphics cards/ram/processors/power supplies can i use to...


you can use these processors:


AMD Athlon 64 (3000+ - 4000+)
AMD Athlon 64 FX (51 - 60)
AMD Athlon 64 X2 (3600+ - 4800+)
Some AMD Opteron 1xx series
Some Sempron 3x00+ (Step E3,

any standard wopeer supply will do, and you will need a more powerfyul power supply for a mre powerful graphics card.

you can get any pci-e card. an nvidia 9800gt used to be the 2nd best graphics, but its now the minimum card for gaming. I wqould reccomend a 9800, or at least an nvidia gtx260. the higher the numper, per series, and the 4xx and 5xx series are btter than the 2xx. be sure to check the graphics card for reccomended power supply rating.


for the ram, you need pc3200 DDR ram(DDR-400) or higher DDR ram, not compatible with ddr2 or ddr3.

Can't play games on intel


If you have a laptop, sadly this cannot be helped. You simply have a discreet graphics card that is not meant for gaming.

If you have a desktop PC, then you can upgrade the graphics. Look at which slot you have (AGP, PCI, or PCI-E) and choose a graphic card accordingly. If it's nVidia, take a card with a number above 8000. If it's Ati, a number above 2000.

"Call of Duty" runs in slow motion on my PC.


Hi thomas,

Upgrading video cards will definitely increase in performance. You asked whether you should upgrade your entire PC or just the card and that really depends on the hardware you are running. If all of your hardware just barely meets the requirements than upgrading the videocard WILL give you a noticeable improvement but obviously it will not be as good as getting a better CPU and more RAM as well as a new card.

A good measure of a cards performance is based on the series of cards it is from. Your Geforce is from the 6000 series of Nvidia cards, they have 7000, 8000, and even 9000 series cards atm.

I would recommend something like an XFX Geforce 9800 GTX+ series card with 512MB of onboard memory, or any other competing card in the 200$ price range. This will definitely give you an increase in performance, and is a very popular card.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!

Gaming problem


pixel shaders are required for almost every single game out these days. As cards progressed pixel shaders progressed *** well, and this can be tracked by the pixel shader version on your graphics card. They started to come out around the time of nvidias geforce 3 series or ait's radeon 8000 series. If you have a graphics card any ealier then those models, you most likly will not have them.

They are built into the hardware, so an upgrade is the only option.

Graphics card


If you wish to upgrade your graphics card to a better one you will need to go out and purchase one. A good company is ATI they will have good gaming graphic cards. If you are still unsure about the graphics cards, or if this is not your problem you can e-mail me personaly at 4077mashunit@gmail.com

All the Best,
