Default Having Issues with BSOD and Performance

I have a system that I built in late 2010.

My processor is the AMD Phenom II x6 1090T 3.20 GHz with 16gb of RAM and runniing windows 7 64-bit.

When gaming I've noticed that I'm not getting the performance that I should. My video card is the EVGA GTX 460 with 2GB ram.

My motherboard is ASUS M4A89TD.

Late last week I started getting BSOD indicating an error with my RAM. Thinking that it was maybe a driver issue, I completely wiped my system and reinstalled, but I am still getting intermittent BSOD and errors in World of Warcraft. The techs at the WoW board also said that my dxdiag indicated memory issues. After running some analysis, I believe it may be an issue with my video card ram, but I'm not completely positive.

Below are the results from the Sandra tool Analyze and Advice. Any help is much appreciated.

That information isn't telling us anything. Post some CPU-Z screenshots as well as a HWMonitor screenshot (under load). You should also run a benchmark like 3DMark11 and post a link to your orb score.

Anyone have any thoughts other than the ram I found? System seems to be stable now which is great. Just am wondering if there's anything else I can do to optimize my system.

Thanks!

There isnt going to be much else you can do. WoW operates off the internet, so no matter how fast your system is, if there is a bind with the connection your game will not be smooth. I dont care if you have a 6 Core CPU and 16GB of RAM. If your not connected to the servers well, your game will not be smooth. No way around it.

Yes it was the RAM just like you found. But only knowing that it was WoW giving you issues there is no advise we can give other than get a better net connection.

My ping for WoW is great! I live very close to the datacenters that my server is hosted on so that's not the issue.

I get lower than average fps than what I think I should. Maybe I just need a more powerful graphics card. In cities and higher populated areas I might only get 20-30 fps. Seems to me the system should fly on Ultra modes.
