Really you want to compare your new gpu with WoW? Wow is huge cpu hog. Nothing to do about that. Try something crysis 3,tomb raider etc etc

Yes the new expansion added some new textures as well as the new races have a much more detailed character model frame. I used to raid on a 560ti with the same processor during Cata and never had my fps drop below 60 on full ultra but after the new xpac It started to dip occasionally.

He's just trying to make a comparison on one of his most common games not necessarily to show how much of an improvement it is. If he never really tried crisis 3 on his old setup how would he know how much things have increased? Also not everyone knows what resources a game uses most...

Yep like others are saying, its not your card its that the games you are playing are cpu limited. The difference I had in WoW between a gtx 670 and Titan SLI was almost nothing. However, going from an FX 8120 to a 3570K almost doubled my performance. Its all about CPU with those games.

I'll probably never play anything like Crysis 3 or BF, etc. Just not my type of games. I am going to get BF4 just to see how it is and even see if I like it.

I'll run Precision and see how it looks tonight. Because even with an i5 I don't think I should be dipping to 30s in cities with people.

Just ran the FF:XIV benchmark and evga precision peaked at 75 celsius under the max settings of the benchmark.

Scored at 11,245 on it.
