Re: Buying a new computer
Which model is the compaq? Also, even if you could upgrade the video card, you'd also need to upgrade the power supply for it to be able to handle the video card. Not worth the hassle. If you intend on upgrading/gaming, then prebuilts like compaq aren't good. As for graphics cards, the 6600gt and x1600 are last last last last generation.. or something like that.. lol. You could probably get something cheaper and outperform it by a lot, something like a 4650 or 4670 or 9600gt.
