How do I improve my graphics performance?

  1. I just got some new hardware and I upped all my settings in World of Warcraft (except for multisampling, that causes distortion at anything above 1x?), but at full settings I'm not getting quite the performance I expected. I get maybe 60 FPS and then less than that in crowded areas. I'm not sure on the scale (60 FPS may be good), but I was expecting more outta my computer and I just wanted to make sure I get the most out of my hardware. Nothing is overclocked, but I'm looking into maybe OC a little.

    My Sys:
    ASUS A8N-SLI Premium
    ATI Radeon X1800XT
    AMD Athlon X2 4400+
    Corsair XMS 2x512MB (Upgrading this to 2x1GB)

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Hey man... Let me tell you that i'm at you side... :angel:
    DonĀ“t turn that men machine over here..

    The only thing i'll tell you to do is the Upgrading to 2x1GB... and recent drivers...

    Try other games and test the machine to the top...

    Some games work better with ATI, others with NVIDIA...
