Default motherboard/videocard

hey Guys.
my motherboard is EECS GEFORCE6100PM-M2A Motherboard Socket AM2+/AM3, NVIDIA GeForce 6100 chipset, Dual channel DDR2.

the question is, i want to upgrade my videocard i dont need anything crazy would this motherboard support a nvidia 9600? im not good at figuring these things out. and i dont wanna get ripped off at the store by someone selling me a cheap piece of crap overpriced. and any info on upgrade ideas would be great id love some help setting it up for basically decent basic gaming, nothing major i play wow so it dosent need to be crazy.

i forgot to mention my cpu is AMD CPU Athlon II X2 Dual-Core 240 2.8GHz 1MB 65W

Your motherboard has one PCI Express x16 available, so an Nvidia 9600GT would work perfectly fine on that motherboard as long as it has a PCIe interface.

Your CPU should be fine for playing WoW. How much memory do you have currently? You should have at least 4GB for the best performance.
