I tried all drivers that came after 10.9, formatted more than once to try new ones but the prob still persists.
I formatted on sunday and installed the last 11.4 drivers and again I got that "stop responding message"
I still wonder what happens in drivers after 10.9? I'm a bit depressed I cant update my computer ... what could I check? temperatures are fine and why old drivers work and all the drivers after those dont?
Replace your graphic card :)

I played WoW with a 5850 ATI card..there was an issue with WoW and ATI cards for a while...if the game plays fine using the 10.9 drivers then use them...a lot of ppl upgrade grahics cards for no reason except to have the latest drivers installed.

As long as those drivers do what you need of them whether its WoW or what ever else you do on your PC then there is no point in upgrading the messy, the uninstall leaves crap all over,you need to get rid of it then install your upgrade...lots of b...shit for no noticeable benefit.

imo lol

Video card driver wise, I'd stick with that 10.9 that is working, you are no longer using a new gen card, and WoW being updated should not be a factor, at all.
I'm on a 5850 and using older driver too in PC I built in 8/2010.
Running fine for all games, including Rift.

Video card driver updates are usually because:
Known issue(s) fixed
New model is out and it needs supported.

If you are having no issues and/or driver developers notes don't indicate anything related to your
make and model, then it aint broke, no need to 'fix' (update) it.
