Hi,
I have just finished upgrading my machine. Now CPU Intel i5 3470, katana 4 cooler, asrock h77 pro4/mvp mobo, Memory Kingston hyper x 16gb (2x 8gb)1600 cl10,Graphics Sapphire radeon hd4870 512 mb ddr5, w/accelero twin turbo 2 arctic cooler, wd 320gb 7200 rpm hdd, gigabyte odin 900w p/supply, and tharmaltake xaser 5 case.
NO OC ON CPU OR GPU
Win vista ultimate 32 bit. All drivers are updated.
Now my problem. On wow, with settings on high, fps 35/38. On ultra 25/27. On good 85/95. I expected a higher frame rate, based on the machine config.
Can anyone suggest a possible problem

Nothing, your gpu is a hd 4870. Get a newer gpu if you want play on ultra. A hd 7770 beats a 4870.

What would you recommend as a good replacement board, within the cost bracket of the hd 7770 1 gb ddr5 = +/- €110

I don't know what country you live in so I can't give you a brand but yes get a hd 7770. You'll see a noticeable difference over the hd 4870.
