I am using 169.21 drivers and I have also tried 169.09 and 169.28. Is there something wrong with my rig or is this game getting worse with age? In tech terms WoW is pretty much a fossil and its eating my Ultra up in cities like Shattrath. I have been on a hiatus from World of Warcraft since around May and back then, my computer setup consisted of: Intel X6800 Core 2 Duo 2.93GHZ Nvidia Geforce 8800GTX 2GB DDR2 SDRAM X-Fi Creative Xtreme Music Sound Card Now my system setup is as listed in my profile to the left <------ Back in May, WoW ran quite well, and I would say that I could maintain 60fps or more in 90% of all basic PvE situation and in most areas. Shattrath on the other hand would dip into the 50's maybe 40s. Well with this system, from what I have seen, many areas do in fact play fine, but Shattrath seems even worse than before, often dipping into 40s even 30s and it has made me wary of my new system. Has anything changed that has affected performance in Shattrath? My server Lightinghoof also seem to have become a bit more populated and it does seem like there were tons of people in Shatt. Could this also be it? Another area that seems randomly laggy and low in FPS for seemingly no reason is the Alliance area teleredor. I have no idea why I am just trying to rule out my system and wanted to know if there was anything else to explain it? I appreciate any suggestions that could be provided. On a side note, I have two other questions. In SLI WoW seems to act a bit erratically. Is it still as troublesome as before? And the new sound system, would enabling hardware sound speed me up or slow me down in comparison to before it was introduced?
