Yes, by upgrading your memory, you will probably see an improvement in gameplay and in normal computer functions. 256MB simply doesn't cut it anymore, and 512MB is beggining to stretch it. Really, the best place to be right now is 1GB+ Memory. If you could move up your memory up to 1GB, you'll see quite an improvement, 768MB would also make a good improvement. But, you must also have to know that games don't rely simply on memory, but also on the CPU and GPU, so if your GPU is on the lesser side of town, maybe you should consider upgrading it.

I would go for 1GBb - a jump from 256mb to 1GB - you'll be rocking. Look for a dual channel kit as well, at a nice speed. Evan at 512MB, it's pushing it, you'll get fed up with that one day.

Ive got 1GB, and I want more. But to go from 256MB to 1GB, will be nice.

do you use a videocard or do you rely on integrated video? if you don't have a videocard that would explain the lag in WoW.. and 256mb is bare minimum for RAM requirements on that game.. i think.
