Ok. Well basically CD, DVD and Hard Drives are all cross compatible platforms so you don't have to worry about compatibility issues. If your asking me to choose I would say that you remove the CD writer instead. But before you do this make sure you have enough extra sockets in your motherbaord to plug in your Pioneer DVR-1910LS 20x DVD±RW IDE Drive w/LightScribe if your CD Writer uses IDE interface your inluck coz you can use it in place of the Pioneer DVR-1910LS 20x DVD±RW IDE Drive w/LightScribe, but if it isn't make sure you have a spare IDE socket in your motherboard. Simply remove the side panel use a flashlight and see if there are vacant IDE sockets, it's usually long in black, white or blue color. see the picture below.

What ati and nvidia video cards are compatible with presario s6300nx


The motherboard used has an AGP 8X/4X expansion slot for a video card. Any card for this type of slot will work, and your choice will probably be based on what applications you want to run, and how much you want to spend. Since this computer is an AMD Athlon system, some people believe you should use an ATI card. AMD owns ATI, and there is a belief that an ATI card will perform better. I've tried both (my current video card is an nVidia model, in an Athlon dual-core board), and at least for me it makes no difference.

Can the compaq presario s6300nx has the requirments for windows vista


If the pc is stock - no. To make it compatible you need to add a lot more memory, at least 1GB, and you need a decent video card. With that 7 will run acceptably well, it's still an old pc with a weak processor.
