I just installed my new gigabyte radeon hd 4850 512mb 256 bit and a new 500w psu to replace my old "integrated" geforce 6100 and a 300w psu. Now I'm getting around 9 fps in world of warcraft and as I understand that my old geforce 6100 did much better than this.... One more thing is that I could not remove the geforce 6100 from my motherboard so I just installed the radeon 4850 on the pcie x16 slot and boot up the pc. Am I suppose to remove the old gpu for the new gpu to work? Can I just uninstall the geforce 6100? If so, how?

You need to remove any old nVidia drivers first.

Could you post your full system specs please

Before you go hog-wild, know that WoW runs graphics off the CPU, not the GPU.

I bench-tested the CPU (AMD Athalon DuoCore X64 4600+) and GPU (GeForce 8800DTS) and was surprised to discover my GPU loping along while the CPU was dying at 75%. When it hit 100%, it started tossing in dead clock ticks and disconnects me from WoW.

Yes, removing addons will delay the ultimate collapse, but who wants to play at 6fps? I'm investing in a mid-level i7 and motherboard (Gigabyte or Asus, haven't decided yet).

(You can remove the driver from your hardware manager, advanced tab.)

Download drive sweeper and clean out nvidia drivers in safe mode. Then do a reinstall of ATI drivers.
