Thanks. Been waiting for a straight answer from a WoW addict ^^

Dont get me wrong, a cpu upgrade would definately help, but a new graphics card may yield more of a performance gain. HD5770's are really cheap now, and so are the 6850's and gtx470's.

I agree. Yet not relevent to my question.
WOW is CPU base not GPU base game. I have a friend that maxed it out with an 4870 512mb gpu.

Not entirely cpu based, and a 4870 is a better gpu then a 4770. Settings also matter.

I dont know if you have played the newest patch, but the graphics have changed, and a few settings can make a dramatic difference on frame rates, even with a good gpu and cpu. Just this weekend I saw a thread about someone with a gtx580 and an I7 getting 30fps in org.

Was it my thread?

I was running it on a 1055T at that point. WoW's FPS is temperamental based on what's presented in the environment. You can say the same for every game but in WoW's case it can be up to 100 FPS. On my 1055T I run 140 FPS out questing but get into a major city it drops massively.

@ OP
Some of the settings put down to low will dramatically increase your framerates; because it's such a big world, there's a lot going on, so it strains your CPU when you have settings up near max. Running WoW on the low-mid settings is pretty easy on most comps with decent hardware. It's just when you start touching those higher settings where it becomes a tad more challenging.
