    WoW isn't very taxing at all, if I have GPU-Z or CCC open while playing, the card is only at around a 50-55% load, yet the framerate sucks (no it's not latency issues).

    From what I've heard, ATI has very inconsistent drivers when it comes to WoW.

    I think the problem in dalaran is the amount of people there,causing server lag for everyone.Everyone i know who plays wow has the same thing,no matter what the spec of their pc's.

    Mishrach 78dk/mishrak 70 warrior,btw :D on defias brotherhood.

    What about those uber-obsessive people (or just rich) who have those high end gaming network cards? XD

    I'd love to get my hands on one of those...

    With Wotlk they increased draw/view distance by a load plus 1 or 2 other tweaks i think.

    Guys - its a wow 'bug'. You cant really call it a bug, but it has nothing to do with the drivers. Just wait for the next wow patch, and that should fix it atleast a little :)

    Yep, I've heard the same thing. Does everyone here play on retail server, or does anyone know of a free/donate server that's worth a darn?

    You're probably right as people debate endlessly on the rights and the wrongs, but I paid for WOTLK and feel jipped by Blzzards actions. But you're correct.

    On direct topic: Lag is supposed to get better after the impending patch by Blizzard.:)

    Buying a high-dollar NIC is like buying cables from Monster. You're paying 10x what you should for no boost in performance.
