Hey all, I have This and am looking to upgrade the processor and memory inside of the machine.

I have read various upgrade guides like:

This
and This

Does any have any experience with one of these? anyone know what the best processor would be to put in? or memory? preferably cheap.. and from Canada aswell..

Thanks for your time!

Seems I had read of some putting a e5200 in there with good results.
I am confused by the DIY you linked to, they both refer to AM2 processors, but the EX470 has an Intel Socket 775 CPU.

Why replace the RAM? Is the 2 gigs in their not enough (it should be for most servers)?

why do you want to upgrade? What is it that's currently limiting you?

If you aren't taxing the current cpu or using all the available memory (if your system is acting as a simple file server for example) then an upgrade won't help.

My gut feeling is that adding more RAM would be a good idea, but changing the CPU won't be worthwhile for most people (again depending on your usage).
