Isn't WOW an online game? Slow internet would obviously affect your performance, no?

Hello icikle,

I see that you have the "Anisotropic filtering" set to 8x.

Here's a quote from the NVIDIA Control Panel:

Description:
Anisotropic texture filtering affects the crispness of textures.

Typical usage scenarios:
* The image will be less blurred at higher settings, however, you may experience a decrease in performance
* If the application has it's own anisotropic filtering controls, it is recommended to use the application-controlled settings

I believe that if you set this to "Application Controlled" you might see an increase in FPS.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you :)

Regards,
Olrik

I would say there is a very slight increase in performance, i consistently get 30fps in busy cities and about 40-50 elsewhere, but is the maximum 60fps, cos i hear tales from ppl who get like 100fps in quiet areas and i cant get over 60, also would the multisampling colour depth on my resolution make a diff?

Hey icikle,

Yes, it would make a difference.
In the Resolutions Tab of the Video settings, is Virtual Sync turned on or off?
What Color setting are you currently using?

Try turning off the Virtual Sync
That refresh rate doesn't sound familiar
Doesn't it say "60Hz" (possibly a different number)

Good to hear :) I thought it might be virtual sync.
It 'binds' the FPS to the refresh rate of the monitor.

Glad to be of help! :)
