What is the full model number of this PC you are asking about so I know exactly what you have?
There are lots of different models in the 6000 series.
I will say this...
If you need to change CPU, motherboard and video card, you might as well buy a new computer.

That system is over 7 years old and cannot be upgraded to the new 7th gen core i7 cpu.
Its using the first gen core i - Nehalem series.
Most likely, you wont be able to fit just any new motherboard into that case since HP uses mostly proprietary setups.
You would also have to buy all new parts for everything to be compatible including memory, PSU, video card, hard drive, case, etc.
You could only upgrade to the first gen Core i7-880 Quad, but even if you could find one, it wont be worth the price
and then it still wont be very good for gaming.
This is why I said, you are better off to buy a new computer already setup with the latest hardware for today's gaming
needs. Anything you spend to upgrade an old system, is money you could put towards a new system.
Sorry, but I hope that helps.
Let me know if you have other questions.
