there is not much you can do with a slim line PC and a DELL BIOS. Your biggest issue is the 250w PSU, small case size limiting you to low profile graphic cards, and a BIOS that limits CPU upgrades. I honestly would just install a low profile ATI 5570 and call it day. It can run games at low-medium settings and let you start saving for a gaming PC/build.

Can you find the list of supported processors and link to it here?

Well I see that it takes DDR2 800 MHz ram in 1 GB modules. Certain models take four dimms other take 2 dimms.
