Default Gaming PC - Problem

My computer can run WoW with 20 FPS on Dalaran. I get more fps on Call of Duty 4 on the highest graphics. This seems to be a problem since WoW can usually run on low-end computers.

QX6850 3.0GHz Quad-core
4GB Patriot Ram
780i Mobo
22 Inch Monitor

I have the latest drivers installed.

Seems fine to me... if there are lots of Raids and group members together at the same time, it causes an FPS drop

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

MMORPGs are hard to determine a good FPS, I play EQ2 and you can't run anything above high quality on a raid even with the best computer out there.. there is just too much going on in the game with shadows, particle effects, and everything else. on my 4870 i get 40fps on extreme quality when i'm looking at a wall lol.. usually plummets to 18 when in raid. CSS on the other hand i get over 300...
