Looking for possible upgrades for my Hp Compaq DC5800 small form factor. I already know what can be done ot these computers is limited. If anyone knows if a regular mobo wil work in it in place of the L shaped one that's in it. I been looking for days on end for upgrades i can do to the board that's in it like changing out the core 2 duo processor for the core 2 quad or better if there is one. I'd also like to put a decent graphics card in it that wn't over power the seemingly unchangable power supply. I also know i could buy a different shell and build a computer but i like this one's size and the fact it lays flat instead of standing up blocking my window. Any upgrades that can be suggested would be greatly appreciated. Here's some info on what it came with inside it i have only upgraded to 5gb of ram it couldn't handle 6gb the bios needs to be upgraded for that and i have no idea how to do it.
