Good idea? I don't want to switch to Intel because that would require a new Motherboard as well.

The problem is that WoW uses < 4 threads effectively, which means that Intel's Ivy Bridge and Haswell chips (with their much better per-core performance) are markedly superior for the purposes of WoW than any AMD chip on the market.

In addition, the Bulldozer/Piledriver FX-8xxx lines just didn't improve much in terms of per-core performance over your current Thuban either.

Long story short: If you want to significantly improve your WoW experience, you'll have to switch over to Intel.

Wow is weird with graphics settings. Have you tried running differeny versions of directX? Also, what are you in game graphics settings? A screenshot would suffice. I had problems with the sunshafts being on at the same time as the best view distance setting. Some combos work better than others.

I had a 965BE at 4.4Ghz when I played wow and honestly it performed better with a 550TI than your rig is now. I would look more at changing in game options.

Be advised that the only Intel processors that can be overclocked end with a "K" suffix (e.g. i5-3570K, i5-4670K).

As such, your most economical option right now (assuming that you're planning on OCing) is the Intel Core i5-4670K + ASUS Z87-A motherboard for $340 @ Newegg.

I have tried changing them quite a bit. I will get some stats/screen shots however.

That is the motherboard I was looking at, so that is a good bundle. Hopefully this bundle will be here in a month or two.
