Hi All, 
My name is Arnold, I have find this forum on Youtube when I was looking for advice/tips for my Desktop. 

I have old one, but I dont want to push away, I love it and also is my secondary machine just for backup when I have problems with Laptop. 

Details: 
HP wx4600 (Workstation), 
Dual Core (it's possible to put a i3 or i5 processor?)

4GB RAM DDR2, (I'm trying to find other RAM Sticks but without success, I have try 3 different sticks). 

Quadro NVS 295 (I'm looking for another quadro). 
Kingston SSD

 

I use for Photoshop but not to much most of time its for Word, PP, Notepadd etc.

 

Appreciate your advice what part I should use and where I can buy. 
Sorry for my English :)

Be in touch
Arnold

if i have the same hp wx4600 in mind, you could put a core2quad or xeon inside it, but with the hp motherboard it's kind of a guess sometimes. it looks like the q6600 is supported

Thank you for reply, 

I'm trying to find part for this on ebay but I'm not sure if they are compatible for my pc, exemple RAM, I cant find what works with my desktop :)
What about graphic card? any suggest include price?

well, as far as my hps go, crucial/micron and hynix work most of the times. i would turn off safe mode, maybe that helps?

the q6600 with a older gpu (rx300/rx200/rx400/r9/700/900 for example) should get the job done on the cheap
