Default WoW Forces Computes to Hang, here's symptoms

Computer Hangs/Lags in WoW, here are symptoms

I have a question regarding my FPS in World of Warcraft. It's not so much my fps really, but it will lag or hang in certain areas. For instance when there are many players around me it will often just hang for half a second or so then revert to its normal fps. I don't know whats wrong really, as it should be running smoothly. Heres my stats:
ASUS P4P800S (800FSB) DDR400, 8XAGP, USB2.0, Sound, Lan, S-ATA
Intel Pentium 4 Prescott 3.2 GHz (800 FSB) 1024K
2 gigs(2x1gb) of Patriot DDR400 Ram, timing 2-3-2-5
MSI Geforce FX5900XT 128Mb DDR 8x AGP dual head, VIVO
Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Digital
120.0GB Western Digital 7200RPM UDMA100 8m Cache

This is brand new ram, and I have friends with half that amount of ram who dont have lag issues. I can only assume its my video card. I didn't think the 5900 was that much worse than the higher end geforces, but maybe it is. Was looking at this one:

Anyway, my main question is what is causing my computer to hang like this in more demanding areas of the game, and if its my video card, would that card I posted be a guaranteed fix. thanks
