Looking for replace aging Cisco 4006 core switch

Hello Blu,
    I 'm looking for some leads on replacing a Cisco 4005 core switch-

    Current status is  :

     1ST Card   4 fiber connections   and  4 trunk twisted pair connections on the 1ST Card-  current speed 100 M fiber and 1 G TP

    ( looking to increase speed to 1 to 10 G on all ports ) these are trunks

    The 2nd and 3 nd cards are 24 port TP 100m ..   ( looking to increase speed on the back plane min- 1G best to 10 G)

    Dual power supplies 

    VLANS are not required - 

    I ' ve looked around and  see people like HP equipment as an alternate to CISCO - based on price and flexibility - 

    Looking to information from others who have made such an upgrade.

Thank you,
