I think the RAM is holding you back. There isn't enough to load all the game data. 4GB is the minimum you should have to play games released in the last 2-3 years.

well, WoW was released 7 years ago? dont know exactly, but nvm :) 
i also think its because of the ram, because your computer has to load much informations in a raid/town / ... .
also what it could be is your internetconnection. my friend has a 8mbit connection and if his Brother plays WoW too, they're gonna have also big lags in raids/town.

I'm going to assume that when you say "lag", you mean your FPS goes down (video becomes choppy, etc).
Before anything, may I know what settings you use when you play Wow? And at what Resolution?
There's a good article about WoW and its performance on various computer tiers at

ram is a problem yes, but that cpu will probably also be slowing you down if you upgrade ram. wow is heavily cpu bound, if you could overclock you may see performance gains.
