Here is what I found, but some hyperlinks may not be active:

 

HP Z200 Small Form Factor Workstation Specifications

 

BING's cache of the above document

 

HP Z200 Small Form Factor Workstation - Overview ...

 

HP Z200 Small Form Factor Workstation - Maintenance and Service Guide

 

which states that it takes (expensive) ECC RAM, up to four sticks, up to 4GB per stick.

 

Are you really sure that you want to do any upgrades on this "antique" system?

> Should I not do upgrades?

 

I think that your update options will be very expensive, and probably will not provide a significant boost in performance. Also, updating an "antique" system can only be amortized over 2 or 3 years -- after that, you'll probably need to replace the motherboard.

 

Start with a modern motherboard, supporting:

  • much more than 16GB of RAM,
  • quad-core & six-core & eight-core processors,
  • "high-end" PCI-E graphic adapter cards,
  • SSD devices transfering data at 6 Gbit/second speed,

and you'll be much happier for the next 5 years.

@mdklassen thats the thing I can't get a moderen graphics card because it is in a sff case thats why I wanted to know the motherboard because then I can find a case for the board since the i/o is on the left instead of the right, right where the graphics card slot is for moderen cases my card slots and i/o are reversed for moderen cases. For right now for a graphics card I have an AMD Radeon HD 7570 and want to upgrade it.

Next time you want to know your motherboard's model on a logged-in windows session, just type this in a CMD terminal (cmd.exe):

DDR-3 ECC ram (which is what the z200 uses) is expensive only if bought new from a retailer if you buy used ram from a seller on ebay, you can get a money back warranty from most major memory resellers

 

DDR-3 ECC ram is being dumped on the market as Data centers, and other users of this ram type (DDR3) have moved on to DDR4 type ram

 

you can buy 64GB of DDR3 ECC or non ECC ram quite cheaply on ebay

 

The HP Z200 Workstation takes the PC3-8500/10600 DDR3 SDRAM DIMM 240pin memory Memory 

 

ram speed is dependant on the CPU model installed, however  you can use 13333 speed as it will step down to 10600

 

here's a example ebay link for 16GB (4 four GB modules ECC type) for 29.00 US dollars
