This is the Video Card

Is your V-sync on?

I have a feeling that v-sync would not fix tearing of that magnitude. Either your video card ram is clocked too high/no good or your system ram is no good. That's the only thing that can cause video corruption like that. It could possibly be drivers, (are you using control panel AA as some games are not compatible with this).

Thats definatly clocked too high on either memory or CPU (overheating)

U may be right. I've only seen this when my video memory
was clocked to high. Or bad drivers on my rig.

Thats looks pretty bad. I would imagine its either 2 things. Try a different driver first as suggested. First troubleshooting step. Second. If your overclocked set it back to Norm. If you're not overclocked. Underclock your system to see if it improves. Lastly try the card in another system.. obviously no reason WoW should look like that...

I had this same problem on an ECS board with a Radeon 9700 (non-pro).. showed it's ugly face in pretty much every game.. I brought my box to a friend's computer shop and let him swap everything out piece by piece.. turns out that entire lot of MBs he got of the same type had a serious problem with voltage regulation.. So, since I bought the MB from him he swapped it out for an NForce 2 board and the problem went away, using every since piece of the same hardware other than MB..

Try the latest drivers from www.nvidia.com first
