    I assume ur on a laptop right? Then I doubt u will be able to do anything to run WoW, aside from buying a new one with a standalone video card. Laptops are notoriously non-upgradeable.

    I've strangely seen laptop video cards online, but I wouldn't suggest that.

    What do u mean upgrade on the net? U physically do not have the part u require to run the game so ur gonna have to buy it off the net or from a store and either install it urself or get someone to do it for you. How much are u willing to spend and what other games do u plan to play on that PC? Also, where are u located?
