    The ML150 G6 is a dual CPU Socket 1366 workstation and you can upgrade it to be decent at gaming. It is not ideal for gaming as games tend to not care about having more than one CPU but they will run fine as long as the CPUs are fast enough. The fastest CPU apparently supported is the E5540, which should give okay enough performance in games with a decent GPU backing it up. You very well may run into issues with the power supply though. The stock power supply on the ML150 G6 is 460 watts (not a lot for a dual CPU system) and apparently does not have any PCI Express GPU power connectors. You will want to use a GPU like the Radeon 7750 that does not draw more than 75 watts so you don't overload the power supply or need a PCI Express power connector that the PSU does not have. Alternatively, you can install a better power supply and get yourself whatever GPU you want. Look at Tom's latest GPU charts for some ideas.
  3. ml150 supported pci express 16 graphics card ?
