Also what is the output of your psu? To do a good core 2 with an 8800gts it would be wise to pack at least 500watts or more.

Also WoW is an mmo so a lot of performance issues can be bandwidth related and not hardware related. I know that my rig in Second Life can have really low fps and its due to net lag not to any hardware bottleneck.

Might want to take a look at your memory timings too. I'm no expert in this area, but that CAS latency of 8 stands out. You should take a look at timing your RAM a little more aggressively if you are not overclocking. It takes a lot of time and a lot of testing, but you should be able to do better.

I thought that the architecture was based of the Pentium M's (laptop cpu) I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I read that when C2D first came out and I built my current rig.

Technically you are both correct. Core (predecessor to Core 2) was based on Pentium M (Yonah). And Pentium M's were evolved from the last core in the Pentium III family (Tualatin I think).

then i remember shutting him up with this benchmark:

BCCHardware - Tech News & More! - Pentium D vs Core 2 Duo

and then he apologized like mad.. :0 but I'm just saying.. the Clock Speeds are low because of the Core Architecture based on Pentium 3 Processors
LOL ! I was just like that when I bought my PC and then I saw that the C2D Beat AMD hands down on every benchmark.
