Video card and CPU alright for gaming?

Hey guys, just wanted to get some opinions on a little problem I'm having. I just built a brand new computer and everything is running the way it's supposed to. I decided to get on and download a few of my favorite games and see how they worked. One of those games was World of Warcraft, which I know is very CPU intensive. I have AMD's strongest current CPU from what I understand, the AMD Phenom II. I am using the GeForce GTX 460 SE 1024MB. I'm also packing 8gb's of RAM. From everything I've heard, I should be running WoW just fine. I cranked up WoW to find myself running at 3-5 fps in a low traffic zone with low settings on. This can't be right, can it? I just spent $600+ on a new system to see it run even worse than my previous junk laptop? Any help or advice you guys can give would be helpful, and if there's anything you would like to know about other parts of my system, I'll be sure to let you know! Thanks again for any and all help guys :)

  1. strange thing was there any other game in progress .

    but i think the game might be damaged try it on any other pc with good specs and see but this is a strange thing in order to be sure that the pc is running well try any other games with good graphics like (crysis , metro 2033) i have a phenom II processor and all of the games are running very fast and maxed out
  2. Try uninstalling the video drivers, reboot and install them again. Check if there's a newer driver version.

    Maybe the game did not install itself properly. I remember having a problem with a newly installed game a while back. A quick uninstall and re-installed fixed the issue I had.
  3. I agree with jaguarsks. Also try other games and see if the same problem persists.
  4. How does one uninstall a video driver? I'm still new to the computer world and definitely still in the learning phase, so forgive me if I need things a bit dumbed down xD
  5. right click on the desktop and go to your nvidia control panel, it will be shown in there. or either access it from the control panel.
