Default WoW - 45FPS 260GTX??????

I just made my mate a PC and his E8500 + 4GB DDR2 GSkill PI + 260GTX gets around 45FPS in WoW. Ive never played the game, but for the games graphics and such i am shocked.

And my other friends PC: Q6600 + 8800GT + 2GB Ram gets about 30fps.

Isnt WoW meant to be the least intensive game out???? Whats going on???

BTW, all settings are maxed and the resolution is only set to 1280x1024. hahaha.

It may be limited to that, you don't need more than 45fps on a game like WoW, have you tried the ultimate crysis () or COD4?

I get 40-60fps in WoW (depending on where I am) with most options cranked with an 8800GTS Do you have Vertical Sync turned on in the Video options? That locks you to a multiple of your refresh rate. Do you have AA and stuff like that on too?

WoW isn't the least GFX intensive game. Steam would have those.

Its your resolution. Also, tweak some of your settings, there are new shadows that really bring the framerate to a crawl if you crank the slider too far.
