Hi, i bought a HP brand slim pc 2 years ago, the computer itself runs great but when it comes to gaming its just terrible.

I would like to know if it is even worth my time to upgrade the current video card 'Nvidia Geforce 6150SE nFORCE 430' and psu or if it is worth just buying myself a £600 Budget gaming pc instead.

My PC Specs are:

HP Pavilion Slimline s5300uk
Motherboard: M2N68-LA (Narra6) (Manufacturer: Pegatron)
Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 215
Memory: 3 GB Ram
Power Supply: 220W
Video Graphics: Integrated graphics using nVidia GeForce 6150SE
System Type: 64-bit

Note: I don't have that much knowledge of computers specs, so any helpful information would be great.

You can upgrade your video with a low profile card, but since all of them are 75W there's no need to change the PSU. I don't have access to retailers in the UK, but Newegg here in the US has good selection. Maybe you could find one of these locally: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Now would I be able to run World of Warcraft on this Vid card?

Depending on the resolution of your monitor, yes. That card is probably at its best at 720P (1280x720, 1280x800, 1366x768) or less. Maybe a better choice would be an HD 7750 Low Profile card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...
That is about as high as you'd dare go with that tiny PSU. The HD 7750 is a more capable card than the HD 6670. Can do well at 1080p with reduced settings. WoW should fly with it.
When I sent the previous link, I was hesitant to recommend anything more powerful. But later I remembered I had used a Sapphire L-P HD 7750 with a 220W PSU I had in an HTPC I had built. No problem.
