well I looked up the specs of your graphics card and it seems to be onboard graphics.

Some Onboard graphics aren't really crash hot with gaming, it might seem find watching dvd's but in games no way.

My onboard graphics is 512mb but when I play a game so simple like World of warcraft for instance even on the lowest settings it still glitches like a mofo.

Trying investing a graphics card if you just want a cheap one that will do for now just get a 512mb card. and learn how to overclock it

Is this a prebuilt computer, or one someone else built for you? By prebuilt I mean Dell, HP, Acer, Gateway etc. If so, what is the model?

Overclocking is making a component run over the speeds at which it is sold to be at. If you don't know what you are doing, don't even attempt it until you have a very, very firm idea of what you are doing and what it does. I wouldn't even try to overclock an onboard GPU, if indeed you can at all, not only because performance gain would be next to 0, but also because of extra heat build up. The heatsinks on the chips aren't designed to take large amounts of heat, and when done properly, overclocking won't throw out substantially more heat, however that bit extra, I wouldn't personally be comfortable with

Your computer isn't bad, just not good at gaming. Nothing you do will change that unless you get a new graphics card.
