for the gfx card, your motherboard has a pci-e x16 slot and that gfx card you linked to has a pci-e x16 interface, so yes, it will work.

although, for 15 kr more (i'm not familiar with this currency) you could get this card which is better
ASUS RADEON HD4350 512MB DDR2 PCI-E VGA/DVI/HDMI SILENT - Produktinformation

for the cpu, no it doesn't look like it will work. it has the correct socket, but the hp motherboard only supports old pentium and celeron cpus.

What's the difference between the ati and the nvidia graphic card? the only thing i can see in the specifications is that the ati has crossfire support,

and 15 kr ~2 u.s dollars lol ^^

Could you possibly link me to a processor better than; Intel(R) Celeron(R) D Cpu 3,2 Ghz (single core i think)
that will work with my motherboard? (possibly a dual cored one, because they are better than single cored right?)

You most likely have a 840 or 935 pentium D. There is not much you can purchase that would be much better than those and worth the money for your board.

I would save your money for a later mb and cpu upgrade.

You can save a bit here as well.

because it performs better for almost the same price.

take a look at T-F's graphics card list, which will give you an idea of where different cards rank based on their general performance.
Graphics Performance List

63. HD4350

64. 7800GT
65. X1800XL
66. 7800GS
67. X1800GTO
68. HD2600XT
69. X1650XT
70. Chrome 440GTX
71. 7600GT
72. HD2600 Pro
73. Chrome 530GT
74. X850XT
75. X800XT
76. 6800 Ultra
77. 6800GT
78. 6800GS
79. X800XL
80. X850 Pro
81. X800 Pro
82. X800GTO
83. 8500GT
84. X1650GT
85. Chrome 430GT
86. X1650 Pro
87. X1600XT
88. 7600GS
89. HD2400XT
90. X800
91. 6800
92. X800GT
93. 7300GT
94. X1300XT
95. X1600 Pro
96. 8400GS

you'll see that the card you chose, the 8400gs, is ranked 96th, whereas for what you said is the equivalent of just $2 more, you could that 4350 i found on that site which ranks in at 63.

but it looks like hefe also found a 4350 for cheaper on a different website.

Well.. you should thnk well before upgrading coz it all depends on the purpose of you using your PC.If your upgrading for gaming its sure a poor investment as its more likely to cause a bottleneck using a big Graphic card and a poor CPU. So, its better to know what the purpose of the upgrade else wait a bit more and get yourself a new MB as well a new CPU.
