    From the looks of it it doesnt look like you have dedicated graphics card. Without one of those you will e have tons of trouble playing Wow or SWG. You also might want to buy more ram, I find 768mb seems to make WinXP much more happier then 512. And your PSU is alittle small only 275watts little tiny. Also I wouldnt reccomend buying any desktop computer from Dell.
