Default Upgrading Graphics card or ram for laptop

Hello, i am currently stuck in a situation. I have a MS Windows 8 64-bit AMD E-450 APU with Radeon HD Graphics, 4.0GB RAM, AMD Radeon HD 6300 series Graphics Toshiba Laptop and i dont know to upgrade the graphics card or ram? I use this laptop mainly for gaming and school stuff. I want to get games to run smoother. The game i mostly play alot is WoW or World of Warcraft. To make this game run more fluent, which should i upgrade if possible? Thanks.

What is the model of the laptop? Upgrading the graphics is a no go because it is built into the CPU (hence APU), but upgrading the RAM might be a possibility. Unfortunately for you, upgrading the RAM wont really help you at all.
