Default Freezing Issue

While playing World Of Warcraft, i get these odd frame skips. Ive reformatted, no change. Ive also lowered the settings, no change. This is a very recent problem and i cant think of anything i have changed in my hardware to have caused this. It has been happening for maybe 3-4 days but ive been playing the game for about a year and nothing like this happened.

Check your cpu and gpu temps, they might be getting hot....try installing different/newer drivers for your graphics card....try Everest for temps:
