Hello there Willogaz Welcome to your forum!:  1st & formost there are 3 different versions; US\Belgium-Luxembourg & Spain.

 

I did the research on the US model however if the info doesn't apply to you I will finish up later if you request

 

quite frankly considering that you have a new computer you likely barely realized its full power yet  but you asked for the max so here goes.

 

the way to do this is to look for a uATX motherboard that's the same size(9.4" x 9.4") & fits your case down to the same exact screw & offsets.

you will no longer have a HP PC but a custom built model that happens to fit the(I have seen custom built computers that use the original) case but once you cross that threshold you'll at least kept up with with whatever came down the pike and know how to do it then you'll have an almost immortal machine all you have to do is swap out parts as needed including the motherboard & PSU.

 

hopefully you have some computer building experience or know somebody that can do your bidding.

since your computer is only a few months old you might hold off on this radical solution for a few years

...in the meantime...

 

if you're willing to stay with your motherboard then you can go up to a i7-7700 4.2-4.5GHz proc

memory might be the reason why you might try for a motherboard transplant fairly early because it's limited to 16GB of 288 pin DDR4-2133/PC17000 Dual channel 

The PSU is fairly beefy it's 500watts but it doesn't say what category of efficiency eg. Bronze

The HD is a fairly paltry 1TB but you can circumvent that by getting a USB connected external SSD attached to one of those USB 3.0 ports or get an powered hub & attach that drive to that & the hub to the aforementioned 3.0 port with expansion by merely dragging & dropping to it.

 

going for the max is challenging including to "What's In Your Wallet?" but if that's your ultimate crusade & holy grail it can be done.

 

good luck in this endeavor

hope this helps, enlightens as well as behoove you

if there's anything else rattling between your 2 ears or you merely wish to extend your computer education

Happy Holidays to you & your family!

Hi,

 

Buy a new machine if you wish to upgrade all of those.

 

Regards.
