Hello, first post here. I am trying to get a older computer upgraded and am giving to a buddy so that we can game together. I was wondering if there is any way i can upgrade my hp p6754y so that he would be able to play world of warcraft. as is it can barely play it at min. settings and i would like to be able to get it running smoothly on at least min settings. I am aware that it is a integrated graphics card and probably needs a new motherboard and power supply but that is the extent of my knowledge for this computer.

You would need a new CPU, motherboard, RAM, PSU. Plus a $20 SSD would do it wonders. You would replacing everything but the HDD and case. You might as well just make a new one since to bring it up to par will mean basically building a whole new PC. If you want to do this on the cheapest side you could grab a prebuilt with a 2nd/3rd/4th gen i5 and 8GB and slap in a $20 SSD plus at least a GT 1030 (although if you go higher than this things you may need a new PSU) and make sure if you get a low profile PC you get one that includes a low profile bracket.
