My specs are listed below, obviously this system should run World or Warcraft lights out but....

I have taken a huge FPS hit on this new build. My previous system was a X2 4800 with a 7800 and I ran 40 man raids at 1600x1200 with all candy on, no problem.

My new build included Vista, but I have since scrapped it due to even worse framerate/driver support.

So currently.. I am running XP pro with the following:

C2duo 6700
EVGA 8800gtx (768)
Aero cool zero dba 620watt PSU
2 gigs Corsair dominator
EVGA 680 MB

Latest bios for MB
Have tried several different drivers etc...

What am I missing? Why is this new build outperformed by my previous?
It runs Company of Heroes amazingly.. I'm stumped.
Any help would be appreciated.

I have basically the same setup, only with the Asus P5B mobo. WoW runs perfect at 1920x1200, 4xAA, 16xAF, no transparency AA. I don't really know why it would be slow for you. :(

Which driver version are you running? Also, do you run at fullscreen mode, windowed fullscreen, or just plain windowed? Do you run with vsync/triple buffering on?

You can run WoW at full settings on a pencil sharpener. I dont see how on earth an 8800GTX would have a problem. ;)

Go play that wasteland you call Vanguads... maybe if you start now you can find a group by next weekend.

Running it on my 8800GTX with a 1680x1050 monitor, all options cranked (view distance etc etc) and never drops below 60.

On my upstairs 1920x1080 it also runs smooth as butter.

Reinstall the driver and see if that helps. I've had to do that multiple times after reinstalling a new game.

97.92 for driver

I play in Windowed fullscreen

Yes on the Vsync and triple buffering.

On dual core rigs WoW is capped at 60fps(going to be fixed in an upcoming patch, so I hear) ..but I'm completely max it out, at 1650x1080(monitor native res) and it stays pegged at 60fps in all situations

Hmm, i got no idea then, coz at those settings in XP Pro, i used to get minimum of 60 - up to max of 210.

Um what? It runs at 85FPS capped on my end and thats because I have vsync on.

ok, maybe the cap is off now.....I still run with v-sync on which keeps me at 60fps.
Anyway, I've never have had performance problems with WoW and this 8800. I always run the latest official FW

There is a option that is to do with the Mouse settings. Check those 2 out. it should be in the interface options. It also says on the tooltip that it can cause framerate issues...for me i turn it off..and it helps alot with the SLI as the green bars max out then..
