I have a HP Z600 workstation. I use it for my work. I work as a civil engineer and i want to upgrade my Graphics card. At this moment my Graphics card is ''Nvidia Geforce 8400 GS''. I want to install a better GPU to help me do renderings faster. My Question is: I can install anything i want or my pc has some limitations?

Upgrade it! Check out the video on the Z600 upgrades a person on YouTube did. IMHO the video special effects are a bit over the top, but the upgrades are legit. eBay.gr would be a great source for a PCIe 2.0 video card.
Your HP z600 already has a 650W PSU so you are ahead of the game for video card upgrades.The PSU does not have a 6 or 8-pin PCIe power connector. Most powerful video cards require at least one six-pin PCIe power connector.That would mean you may have to purchase an adapter. If you look carefully in the video you can see that the upgraded uses an adapter. The adapters are usually delivered with the video cards.
See the specs for your z600 at the link below this line. It shows a number of compatible video cards at different levels of specification.
