If it is just with WoW it could very well be on the network side of things. What are your pings like with the game?

That seems to be okay. Next is to defragment your HDD and run an error scan on it. WoW is one of those games that accesses the HDD quite often as far as I know. Also make sure you have minimal background processes/applications running that may be interfering.

yes... even more so if you installed it over the top of the old one.
