Need some advice!

I'm looking to buy a new desktop/laptop.

This is what I'm used to playing wow on.

Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+ 2.41 GHz
Memory (RAM): 1023 MB
System type: 32-bit
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 6600
Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Chip type: GeForce 6600
DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC

If you need more information let me know.

Basically it's awful. I throw all the setting to the lowest possible and I'm still getting max 15-20 fps on a good day. In 10 mans I get 10-.

I want to buy something better! I want something that gives 30+ FPS. I don't care if I have to throw all the settings on low as long as there are no FPS spikes and it's always above 30+ FPS. Sadly I don't have the ability to build anything on my own :/

I have tried to look on my own for a decent computer for my requirements but nothing really fits what I want.

I don't want to spend a lot of money, but I'm also not trying to be unrealistic and ask for a cheap super-gaming computer.

It'll be easy to please me considering what I'm used to playing on.

Thanks so much in advance :)

Forgot to mention I can't build anything :/ and what I meant by upgrade is buy something new. But I edited to be more clear. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Why don't you have that ability? What do you want?

A lot of people are simply afraid to try to build a computer, but it's not that hard, it's hardly a great test of technical prowess. It's more like putting together a set of Legos than anything else.

But ok, what do you want? What's your budget? How comfortable would you be with getting something used, or refurbished?

My price range is 300-450$. If the price is right I'd be willing to go with something refurbished.

I'd like to avoid building it. Legos weren't really my thing hahaha

That's pretty low, regardless. You would have to haunt some used or bargain systems, and keep your monitor. Even then you'd have to get lucky.

Maybe find somebody else to do it for you then.
