I just received a Hp ProLiant Microserver gen8 with 2 gb ram and intel celeron dual core processor.
my question is next:
With a good PCI express video card and Intel Xeon E3-1220V2 cpu can i use it for playing games ?
or could you please sugest me a more compatible Cpu for it and a Graphic card for it ?

No suffisent memory for me.
1) Install a SSD on the optical Sata port. (work fine)
2) Yes, change CPU
3) For the graphic card, remember you have a 150W Power Supply.... Maybe you can add a GT640, but look a Slim Graphic card without any Power connection to add.

Take a look at this thread over on the homservershow.com forums. Shows most of the CPU's that have been tried in the MicroServer Gen8
As stated, remember this system only has a 150 watt pwer supply. Oh, and no sound card for your games. I have tried one of the no-name $10 USB sound cards and they work fine.
my standard disclaimer: none of these CPU mods are supported by HP
