Below is the link to the HP quickspecs for your PC.


HP Compaq dx2300 Microtower Business PC (


The supported processors can be found on page 3.


The best one you can upgrade to is the Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Processor (2.66-GHz)


They made two E6700 processors so make sure you get the right one that is 2.66 GHz and not the one that is 3.2 GHz, because that one will not work,


For graphics, I would look for a used but tested and working Nvidia GT 210 PCIe x 16 card.

you should specify some names / type of games
because, for some, you may not be able to do anything about it
@Paul_Tikkanen  offers you the Nvidia GT 210 card, which will suit some games, but not the most recent ones, and you may not have any other option than to change the computer.
example for a game like this

Call of Duty: Vanguard

Not definitive, but generally indicated
