    Hey man,

    Short version, there are no good upgrades for that motherboard. The FX-6300 uses a different physical connector than the motherboard has (AM3+ vs your AM2+). Sidenote: The HP website says your processor is AM3, but then says "NOTE:Only socket AM2+ processors are supported with this motherboard." It really is an AM2+ board...

    I looked into the machine you have (thank you for listing the model number!), and there are really not going to be any cost effective upgrades you could do to it.

    If you have the money, and are looking into a new computer for gaming, here is a link to a good (Cheap!) build (you could even reuse your existing hard drive and cd drive):
