So I sit in a place where there are hardly any people and have 15.6 fps. Friend of mine has 116 fps. I know his computer is better but why can't I get at least 50 fps or so?

Is there something I am doing wrong? Is it my motherboard and processor? I've been getting frustrated with this. Thank you for any help.

What is your monitor resolution? What are your in game graphics settings?
Have you tested the performance of your network connection? What speed/latency are you getting? http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest/

what's your PSU? is it 550W or above? Your video card requires 550 minimum to work to its full potential.

You have 3 GB of RAM which SHOULD be enough, I'm not sure about your processor though. WoW is very processor/RAM heavy, so perhaps that could be causing it... I'd definitely look into the PSU first though

Are all the settings the same on both of your setups? When I used to play WoW I remember that the settings that let you see farther would always hit my PC the most, it would drop it to about 30fps with everything else max @ 1080p. This was with a Core i7 and GTX 280.

That processor might be a little to slow to max out everything in the game, the Graphics card and memory should be good enough.

ATM when I turn all my effects to the lowest possible I still have the same fps as when I have them all on. I think they even dropped to 6 and 8 fps.

I hope that answers all that?

Are you able to overclock your CPU some? If the FPS in the game rises then you would know that the CPU was bottlenecking the system.
If you do try overclocking, make sure that the cpu isn't going to overheat.
