I would say a graphics card upgrade will help significantly. The low fps could be a result of you using the Dx 11 features perhaps on your card? It should run better than 2 fps. Have you tried adjusting your video settings?

A 4600 is/was a low end graphics card meant for budget computing. You aren't going to be able to run WoW on high settings any more with that card, tone down your video settings and you should be fine.

If I'm not mistaken the graphics card that you list (ATI Radeon HD 4600 (0x9498)) is a Radeon HD 4650. With that card you should see playable framerates on medium settings. You need to check your graphics/video settings. You should have shadows off and multisampling at 0. I would also suggest turning view distance to low as well. If this doesn't work then I would run WoW in windowed mode, then run task manager while WoW is running. Look for anything program wise (such as antivirys software) that may be using a large amount of system resources. If nothing is amiss with these then it may point to a bad GPU.
