A 4GB MSi card like this one?

That would work great for Wot and many other games at 1920x1080.

I Don't have that HP Pavilion, but I have an older PC with the same graphics card and an older i3 processor that I tested for FPS using the Fraps program to record average, minimum, and maximum FPS.

 

At 1920x1080 resolution I got the following results:

Ultra Preset: 64 FPS average 44 FPS minimum

Maximum Preset:  88 FPS average 58 FPS minimum

High Preset:  111 FPS average 74 FPS minimum

Medium Preset:  139 FPS average 97 FPS minimum

 

It looks like that HP computer is no longer on sale as of this afternoon.

Now that refurbs are getting into 3rd gen i5/i7 territory it's getting harder and harder to recommend a custom built pc unless it's for a specific task.

 

Getting one and popping in a low or mid range dedicated gpu is more or less all you need anymore for ultra 60 fps 1080p play.

 

The newest are even good for higher res as long as you get a new psu and a gpu capable of it.

 

However these lists are great for simple upgrades of an already usable system. :B
