Add another 4GB of PC5300 using matched pairs will improve performance, you will need to move to a 64-bit o/s.

Use a dedicated graphics card rather than the onboard 6150LE which is not a gaming card.

CPU upgrade, ????

To be honest, once you factor in the costs of the above, your looking at a new base unit for the same price.

thank you for replying. i can only have a max of 4gb so i would be best to by them pc5300 and chuck my other ones. i want a pci x16 graphics card but someone has told me i need minimum of 350w for a 1gb top of the range graphics card but being low profile iam limited to space. so i will probs go with what you said about a new base unit. what type of box will fit my ddr2 low profile. if i by any box it wont fit.

will they fit into my low profile box. the Arianet ATI Radeon HD 5830 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card.... looks like a very good graphics card. better than my 256mb on board one lol.

cheers for taking time to find me some good parts.

I am not sure what case do you have?

Unfortunately a mainstream psu will not fit into your fujitsu desktop casing.
Fujitsu uses self fabricated psu's to fit their own designed cases.
So it's going to be hard to find a suitable psu for youre needs without going to fujitsu themselves.
Regarding the Arianet video card as far as i can see this product it's a full height video card, wich will also not fit in your low profile casing.

For the video part, take a look at this:

http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/Pali...

Gaming capable and yet low profile.

The board (if not mistaken) can hold up to 4Gb of ram, so upgrading is possible but if doing so the best option is like stig mentioned to keep them paired (all of same type).

Regarding the cpu, as far as bios update's go and i can see from here the maximum cpu is a amd 4400+.
Not very much to win there.

Hope this helps :)

yes your right max of 4gb ram. yeah i will be geting 2x 2gb ram and make sure they are the same.

i have had a good luck at my pcu and its not a perfect square its curves to fit in and it is not that big and it only just fits into my pc. its 250w power and 270w for 10 seconds it say's.

i can see where you are all coming from with a low profile pc. what a bugger.

only reason i got this pc was when i went to get a pc this was the only dual-core. and ino these days a dual-core is the minimum you will need to play good games and speed things up a bit

now i get what your saying about graphics card at the back where i would plug my monitor into its half the height of a normal tower

so from what your all saying i would need to put this mother board into a tower and get a 350w minimum pcu with to of the same ram. get the graphics simon12 said to get.

what type of tower will i need for this ddr2 low profile pile of **** lol

As far as i know it doesn't really matter what type of casing you get.
Mainboard mounting is universal and also fujitsu does not ignore that fact.
So either atx case should suffice.

(sorry for not posting this in the previous msg)

Also with a new casing you can go off from low profile and fit whatever card you like :) 
May 11, 2011 12:44:14 PM

Thats what would be the best bet.! a new case.

if i got this case will this fit my ddr2. comes with a 400w psu

then i can just get my graphics card and ram and then iam away, then in the future i can change my mother board for a newer one if i needed

Yes this should fit nicely, btw the casing has nothing to do with the memory.
It's all about mainboard form factor.

Only thing that you should look after when putting everything in your new case is where to place those notches in regards of your mainboard hole's.
After that, just bang in the rest of the parts and off you go :)
