Needhelp trying to upgrade my system

Hey peeps realy need some help i already own a hp with some pretty good hardware which includes 5g of ram amd phenome x4 and all the fixings when i bought it i thought the vid card was good but it absolutely blows its a nvidia not saying there bad just mine sucks. Realy need to know if yall can tell me some parts to get want to transfer to a new case would also like to switch to ati dont know if this means i need a new motherboard or not, but if it does i will greatly consider sticking with nvidia if it means i dont have to buy a new MB. I mainly play wow and would like to have awesome fps while playing. also dont know if that also means i would need a new powersupply. budget is between 400-500 would gladly go lower and possibly higher if it meant good hardware. plz list the part i would need if i went with nvidia or if i went with ati

  1. Motherboards don't distinguish between ATI and Nvidia.

    If you post your system information I might be able to suggest something.

  3. Sorry, I should have specified that you need to post the system specifications.

    Such as:

    CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) 9150e Quad-Core Processor
    Ram: 5Gb 1066Mhz
    HDD:
    Graphics Card:
    PSU:
    etc

    Also, what do you have space to upgrade to without replacing your motherboard?
  4. not rly sure man this would be my first build i think that my video card might be part of my motherboard but it says
    graphics card:NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
    psu:not realy sure would probally just upgrade
    HDD: idk it stock hp one with about 600g
    i also want to get a new case so whatever i need room for i can get
