    Hey, I just recently got a new computer from CP and it came with an FX 5700. I was really excited to try out my new comp so I started to play World of Warcraft. When I started playing I noticed that my graphics were terrible. All the outlining on objects were tearing and when I ran by objects such as a treeline it would look so bad it would seriously give me a migraine. I updated my display driver, tried another monitor, upped the anisotropic filtering, and still nothing. I am beginning to wonder if this video card is sort of a low-budget kind of card. Because I have a 9800pro on my other comp and it plays as smooth as butter.

    So I guess what I'm asking is, should I get a new video card? Or is there something I can adjust in Riva Tuner? Please help, I really feel upset because I expected to be able to play with almost flawless graphics.

    Well WoW's graphics aren't the best as it is...

    Add that to a FX5700, and you've got yourself, well, a crummier looking WoW.

    Ditch the card and get a 9800pro (at least), or better yet, a 6600GT ($200 for mine @ CompUSA)

    oh no, it plays fine... but i definitely notice a drop in frames and the edges seem to be very rough on objects. I guess I just need a new card. Thanks all.
