Is appears your Compaq desktop will be able to upgrade to a PCI Express graphics card.
I have provided a link to the EVGA site for you to copy and paste into your web browser to review the board specifications for compatibility with your computer as well as what operating system you have. They will work with XP, Vista or Windows 7. Also have 1GB video memory.

Most current AGP video cards are now 8X and they will still work with your motherboard but will just be limited to 4X. Trying to find a 4X might be time consuming whereas using an 8X downgraded to 4x would be comparatively easier and faster.
Additionally most Video cards will work under XP with the appropriate drivers but Vista has a limited list of compatible Video cards.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
