Ok so I thaught getting a better GFX card would help me with World Of Warcraft but I guess I was wrong. Yes my FPS have increased a bit but I still get major low FPS down to 4-10 FPS in some areas and my VID settings are pretty much on LOW...

I honestly think it might be my CPU and my PSU...

Here is a info from Everest.

Any ideas?

Well its kinda better now, I had to dust my heatsink and fans there was a lot of dust in the heatsink and luckly I had everest on while playing the game and noticed my CPU temp at 72... So yeah that was 1 problem thats fixed. Now im back down to 48-53 while playing.

Have you done a defrag, spyware scan and all the normal maintenance stuff on the PC recently? You have a DualCore Pentium. Not a Core 2 Duo so that might be a bit of hindrance. But it could just be that your PC and the net connection you are on cant give you high FPS in certain areas.

Well I have 5 HD's and I got copys of WoW on all of them and they all give me the same results. I got a great connection its comcast and im allways under 100ms. I clean my comp reguraly from spyware and virus scans. Someone told me the Pentium D is crap and thats my bottleneck. I also belive my 500W PSU can't handle all this because I got 5 HDs connected + 3 DVD burners and like 5 USB devices..

Well it doesnt matter how many copies of WoW you have installed. Since the only thing that matters is the OS that runs it.

The Pemtium D is a bottleneck for sure. Use a online calculator to see if the 500W PSU is enough. It could be if you have enough 12V rails.
