Hello,
I want to buy a new graphics card off amazon (EVGA 9800gt Akimbo) for my Compaq Presario and this is my first time upgrading my computer so I would like to know if this would work. Here is a link to my computer specs below and please respond fast. Thank you!

You would have to upgrade the power supply.

What is your budget? If it allows, you could possibly go with a Radeon 5670 or 6670, which will give you 9800GT performance.

If the budget allows, go for one of the Radeon 7750 cards.

Why would you buy this card for a compaq given the age of the card? Just get a cheap ATI/AMD card that will run on the stock psu without any worry or concern about having to upgrade that as well.
