please include your computer's specs please. Video card is one :) It could be as simple as a bit of maintenance or an upgrade possibly.

Effects are part of it. Use the lowest res and color depth as well in Wow.
Make sure you have nothing else running on your computer when you are playing - things in the background can really bog Wow down, such as a virus scan on incoming email.

Make sure you don't have a virus on your system. If you do, it will likely be using up resources that you aren't aware of. Same goes for spyware, and other types of malware too.

Watch your ping rate. If its low (100-200) its not a problem. But if its really high, that's your culprit - not your graphics.

Then again if you are running Vista with 1G of RAM, no matter what you have for a graphics card you will have some.. rough spots.

Slow down silver :) Well your computer can definitely run WoW, so start with this. Defrag your hard drive, second make sure you don't have any viruses or malware on your computer, third go to start > run > Msconfig and check your startup for anything that isn't necessary to run (usually drivers and virus protection is what you want to leave).

That's a start, next make sure you have the latest graphics drivers, which you can go to nvidia.com for that. I'll let u know what else you need to do once you finish all that. Such as setting tweaks to help ya out.

Eh, it's only cause he gave the specs :) Turns out his computer should be able to run WoW. Especially with 3 Gigs lol. It's good to know that part first, and like u said if you run vista with 1 gig, you pretty much need more memory.
