Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi there,


I have an HP rp5800 Retail System Desktop PC and want to upgrade it a little bit for a higher speed, as far as it is possible. I know, it is very old hardware but I was able to bring it on Windows 10 Professional and as I'm suffered with a lot of chronic diseases as e.g. Multiple Chemical Sensitivity I need old(er) hardware/things in most cases as they are no longer emits so much and even mainboards (big parts) are emitting a lot of chemicals.


In the next lines I will post what hardware I currently have and will ask therefore, what is possible to upgrade as high as possible.

Mainboard: E93839 FXN1, 1632
CPU: Intel Pentium CPU G850 @ 2x 2.90GHz (Dual Core)
Socket: FCLGA1155, 1155 LGA
RAM: 8GB
HDD's: 1x 1TB and 1x 250GB

Graphic Adapter: Internal only (VRAM 32MB)

I plan eventually to replace the HDD's to 2x 1TB SSD's to already have some increase in read- and write speed. And maybe, I will use both the SSD's in a RAID1 configuration.

Now my questions:

1.) Which best possible CPU with gladly 4 cores and more clock speed (if possible -> if not then I would prefer a higher performing Dual Core CPU fitting the socket) with noticeable more speed is possible on the mentioned motherboard at the maximum state?
Depending on the support of available chipset, drivers and thermal support (but without much more emitting due to more CPU heat regarding my Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) on the board as well as these are also criteria what maximum CPU is possible on this board.
The power consumption is not important for me.

2.) What is the highest quantity of RAM the motherboard can maintain?

 

3.) Which Graphic cards for PCI slot are possible to built in with more RAM for especially using virtual machines, emulators and maybe Graphics editing programs and network Netflix streaming?

4.) Just in case and just have to asked. Which other and more modern board(s) are fitting into this rp5800 housing?


I'm looking for these upgrade parts as I want to have more speed and hardware capacities for e.g. virtual machines or Android emulators as well as copy processes.

 

It dosn't matter or it's better for my money to get used parts (it should not be latest parts but older), but nevertheless with more power.


Thanks a lot for your answers in advance and my kindest regards.
