Upgrading a dell gx260

\015 HiyaI have the same problem - bought an ex-work pc which is a P4 1.9 processor with built in soundcard and graphics (if it has any)and want to upgrade the memory - which i am doing from 1GB to 2GB, but want to know how to but a new soundcard and video card as the slots are verysmall?\015

Answers :

When buying you need to ask for a low profile pci card for sound or video
What alot of manufacturers do is put in 2 plates which unscrews from the boards , which allows for either a regular tower installation or you use the short one for the desktops

here have a look at this site

Fujitsu does not have the firmware flash for this anymore and I can't find it anywhere. D
