Most likely you'll be restricted to an AGP or PCI video card and a PCI sound card. But, to be sure, please let us know the exact model number of your Compaq so we can look the specs up.

Here's a link for the technical specs of your system: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechS...8_rev002_us.pdf
You'll need an AGP card that's capable of handling AGP 4x (the maximum that your system can run). FWIW - most AGP 8x cards are backwards compatible with the 4x standard. Also, you'll have to disable the onboard graphics in the BIOS when you install the card.
You've also got 3 PCI slots on the system - you'll have to check and see if any are free (the link above shows 2 free with the top one containing a NIC card. One of those will hold the sound card.
After that it's a matter of shopping around to get cards that you'll be happy with.
