What did you have for video before?

Do you have DirectX 9.0c installed?

Also... Blizzard recommends a minimum of 1GB of RAM, even though you can get away with 512MB. I would bump the RAM up to 1.5GB. Your DDR400 is running at DDR266, because RAM will, by default, run at the lowest level of RAM installed, no matter what it is. I would suggest upgrading all RAM to match one another. Bring it up to 1.5GB of PC2700 RAM, for example.

Have you minimized video settings in WoW? Default settings (following your reinstallation) may be above what your current setup can handle smoothly. Check shadow settings, Water Reflections, etc...

Also, if you are using a Flat Panel LCD monitor, make sure you are using its default Resolution. 17" ar usually 1024x780, 19" are usually 1280X1024, etc... but check the manufacturer. If you are using a CRT (TUBE) monitor, use 800X600 resolution in the game, should smooth it out a bit.

Thanx.

u know, TI4200 working on DX 8,but 6800GT is DX9.
my pc had dx9.0c on both vga cards.

Warcraft does not require 1 gb ram,it requires 256 ram.


even if i minimized settings,still same problem.

DDR266 (PC2100) RAM, in my opinion is too slow for that game. I would definitely upgrade to PC2700 or if you can, PC3200.

Maybe it is because you have added RAM and now have RAM of 2 different types/speeds now, even though the faster one is dragged down to the speed of the slower, which is typical? I'm not sure. I've always used same spec, if not same brand & model of RAM.
