download driver sweeper to completely remove old drivers and the try re-installing new ones have you got your quad core overclocked ? if you do your gpu benefits from that hugely. also your res is 1440x900 19" Monitor man your card needs res at least 1680x1050 to stretch its legs mate that could also be a factor

Gotta thank you. The fps only went up a few bit but I guess I'm in a really crowded area aswell.

The graphics looks better though.

Too bad my screen can only handle 1440x900 :P

And i've read a few things about wow too, its not all about the gpu. :P
