    integrated graphics isn't going to perform very well at all for you at all. you might look into getting a discreet graphics card such as the ATI HD 4670 for WoW
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102842 it is cost effective, will handle WoW with detail turned up, and does not require an additional power connector.

    Will it still work or will it not allow me to play at all?

    It will run it, just not with great performance/graphical detail

    Hi there you need require a ATI Radeon 7200 or NVIDIA GeForce 2 class card or better & DirectX® 9.0c (included) and latest video drivers for the good performance & graphical look. Please do inform how its performing on your current computer setup.

    I'm short, yes, you can run it, but it will be painful, like bleeding jello out of a water balloon. Spend some cash on a cheap pci e card, that would get you dedicated graphics and decent performance at low to mid detail.

    Especially in a raid environment you'll probably require something better than integrated. More ram as well. I had an x1900xtx with 2 gigs of ram and an x2 4400+ and it was still rough in major cities especially.
