Yeah, my sisters Q9450 rig i built her years back just shi8s all over that game, i cant imagine that a way faster i7 would be doing worse.
I would say something is very badly configured!
My guess is that your version of wow is based on the Single core version and all the other junk that you have still running in the background is also running on your first core. You are likely overtasking one core while the others do very little work. In task manager you can switch wow do a different core or split the core load between more then one cpu.
We need the exact rig info that you run man, can you give us the DXDIAG text?
