It can only handle 3Gb/s though

Also consider adding a low profile card such as GT 730 (PCIe states 25W power delivery, so GT 1030 maybe not much luck)

upgrade ram up to 8GB /ssd 250 GB but it'll run at 3Gbs but still fast /u'll notice the speed up load times. Perhaps remove CD Drive/and add new HDD.

Just change HDD to SSD, it can work without issue.
Then add on 1pcs of 4GB RAM is enough.

Yup, 5400rpm/7200rpm HDD - 100-120Mb/s read/write speeds vs minimum 220Mb/s for SSDs
