Okay, so i can play battlefield bad company 2 on full graphics setting in a 30 man match and not get a single bit of graphics drop at all. but when im playing World of Warcraft on full graphics settings sometimes my graphics will drop to like 20 when im either in a big city. or im in the outlands or something and go to turn around. why is this?

In side big city's, most notably, Daralan, everyone experiences a big drop in FPS. It's related to population and a lot of polygons (drawing elements).
I've also experienced a few odd locations that caused lag myself. Some have gone away with driver updates, others have not. Some lag spikes seem to occur when I cross certain locations. Likely due to loading info. I believe some of these locations are because you move from one server (computer on their end) to another.
ah, ty for both of your help. yeah. in big cities it will drop to like 25-35 at lowest. but like flying around in north rend loading big crap. going straight in across im good. but when i turn it hits like a spike drops to like 6 then shoots back up to likr 50-60.
