ram can sometimes be displayed incorrectly .... Well not incorrectly but slightly different to whats physicaly in the pc. Also if you dont have a seperate graphics card then it could be using shared memory

Download <a href="http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php" target="_blank">CPU-Z</a> and tell us your CPU socket.<br><br>
Also take a peek at the Motherboard tab. and let us know what it says. If you know how to take screenshots, take some and post them for us.<br><br>
That will let us figure out how much your system is likely to overclock.<br><br>
And yeah...not surprised WoW is terrible with so little memory and onboard video. You'd do well to get a non-onboard videocard if possible; the extra 32MB of RAM free would also help.

well i would get a gfx card for you pc as a first if your going to play games..... Btw thats why your ram only displays 224mb its cos the onboard gfx uses the same ram as the rest of ur pc

You cant get that ram back without putting in a dedicated video card. "Onboard" video sucks away at your normal ram. What I would recommend for you is to pick up another 512RAM or 256 *BARE MINIMUM* <br />
<br />
What I would recommend is you pick up a video card for that. A nice low end card would be an X1300 or X1600, an AGP 7300GS is another option.

Hit the phonebook or the yellow pages or a local internet directory. Then call around a bit what local shops have laying around.... A dedicated video card and another stick of RAM would be nice

I have the same core in mine just clocked 1100mhz faster.<br />
<br />
I'm not sure what settings that SiS chipset has in the bios for overclocking, so if you could post all the settings you have to OC then I can help you give it a nice performance boost. If your chipset has a locked AGP PCI bus then you could prolly hit 2.4ghz.<br />
<br />
If you go on eBay you will find a seller known as the fast memory man, he sells 1gb pc3200 for around 38$<br />
<br />
EDIT: I just thought about it, shipping would be outragous
