Upgrading CPU & Memory on a HP Pavilion p6-2103wb Desktop PC

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion p6-2103wb
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I need to upgrade my PC. HP isn't interested in helping me because my PC is out of warranty.  LOL
 
Model: HP Pavilion p6-2103wb Desktop PC
Current CPU: 2.70 gigahertz Intel Pentium G630 (socket LGA1155)
 
They say I can upgrade along these lines:
Processor upgrade information
Socket type: LGA 1155
TDP: 35W up to 95W (processor dependent)
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
Core i3-2xxx/T dual core
Core i3-2xxx dual core
Core i5-2xxx quad core
Core i7-2xxx quad core
Core G5xx/T dual core
Core G6xx/T dual core
(Not sure what xxx means)
Can anyone tell me the highest CPU I can use and also the highest memory chips? I want to upgrade as high as I can.
Thank you in advance,
