Today I am going to be making some upgrades to the HP Z600 workstation that I bought off eBay for $290. My old editing desktop could not keep up with my workflow so it was time for an upgrade. With the addition of a new pair of xeon processors, a Nvidia GTX 1060, a 500GB SSD, along with some other misc parts, I am going to turn this desktop into a powerful and snappy editing / gaming rig.
