HI all I came across a dell optiplex 780 mini tower last week for $50 with the q45 express chipset and the LGA 775 I'm am wanting to mod/upgrade it in anyway to make it perform better and look better.

also I need ideas for case mods for the same computer and any other mods that I can do to it.

I all ready own a really nice gaming pc but would be nice if I could do a little gaming but not necessary

Any input is helpful

IIRC, the 780 uses a microATX/ITX case. It has only low profile expansion slots with an ITX power supply. If you are looking for upgrades, the one you need to get is SSD. Every computer can benefit from the speed of the SSD. There doesn't seem to be much you can do for the processor but you can install a better graphics card as long as it is a low profile card and the PSU is large enough. ITX PSUs are hard to come by in large wattages. Therefore, you'll probably only be able to put in a GT 730 at best.
