Default System Bottlenecking?

Hey Guys,

The system I have should be more than enough to play WoW on, but for some reason in 25 man raids I have to turn the graphics down to the lowest settings just to get around 30 fps during boss fights...if the group is just standing there my fps stays at 60 but once the encounters start (spell graphics and such) it drops to 30, again this is at the lowest graphic settings,
I fell it shouldn't drop to 30 until my graphics are set to "Good-High" Any suggestions?

System Specs:

i5 dual core HT 650 3.2 ghz
Windows 7 Home
6 gigs DDR3
Sapphire 6850 HD
Corsair 650WTX
Screen Rez: 1680 x 1050 60htz
Drivers: 11.2 CCC

Also I haven't really messed with the screen rez in-game, it is set to 1024 x 768 because thats what my old graphics card could handle (5670), although not sure the screen rez would "bottleneck" the performance.

Have you applied the cap fixes?

I had a similar problem on rift a few weeks back but got it to a fixed 60 fps during rifts/invasions/raids

What do you mean by "cap fix"?
