Very few graphics cards with 512MB of RAM will be able to play Dayz at an acceptable framerate.
THat PC is getting close to losing it's marginal value in current generation of online gaming (and games like Arma2 which are older but extremely taxing on hardware), but can still have a long life as a office PC or casual home/home office PC.

Would it help if I upgraded the card to a 1gb? Or is the processor not up to the job? It's just the pc I've been offered for ?80 sorry for my ignorance

It all depends on which model graphic card is. If you can get us full specification I can say precisely.

I have dual core PC with 512Mb graphic and 4gb of system ram, and I can play Dayz. But processor is 3.0Ghz stock, and graphic card, is Nvidia GTS450 512Mb ( Gddr5/128bit). Now if yours will be anything alike it would work on medium/high setting with occasional stuttering here and there. But if your graphic card is any weaker than this and your processor is on 2Ghz ( weaker than mine is ) Im afraid you wont see much with it.

If its a a Dell maybe you can tell us its exact model so we can see what were dealing with.

From what I was reading it supports up to 4GB of DDR2800 ram and C2D max, so you cant go over that. You can get stronger graphic card, even newest will work, but your cpu might cause bottlenecks. Also you must upgrade PSU cause stock one is 375W and cant support modern gaming GPUs.
