As the title states I am only having this issue when playing World of Warcraft. I recently replaced my 6800GS with a 9800GT. I had the problem occasionally with the 6800 but it is much worse now with the 9800. I am currently using the 178.24 whql drivers as they have given me the LEAST problems. I tried all of the 180 series drivers and they were worse and some locked up my system. I have not tried the 178.13 and below drivers, which brings me to a noob question. If I use a driver series prior to 178.13 (which is the first driver to enable phys-x for the 9xxx series) will my performance suffer in games, i.e. reduced frame rate and IQ? Heat does not appear to be an issue as my temps (cpu 45 C idle, 54 C load), (GPU 50 C idle, 60 C load) are ok. I believe this is solely a driver issue. I always use driver cleaner and use the standard uninstall and install methods for drivers. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this issue makes playing the game impossible.
