  1. More than likely you're CPU limited, especially if you enabled the TLB bug fix in the BIOS which slows you down another 10% or so. Disable the TLB bug fix, overclock your CPU, and see if your FPS goes up. If overclocking the CPU doesn't work you can try raising, or lowing, the video quality to see if you GPU limited, which I doubt. I would suspect it to be a networking issue (as an online game WOW is pretty connection dependent) before I would suspect the GPU though.
