New (descent?) Laptop, What now?

  1. Hey all.
    I've just bought myself a new laptop (ASUS G73Jh)

    The Specs of the Laptop are:
    *Processor: Intel Core i7, 1.60 GHz
    *Memory: 8GB DDR3 RAM
    *GFX Card: ATI Radeon, HD 5870

    I THINK this should be good enough to run games as; World of Warcraft, CSS, CoD, ...

    Now it turns out that it's not,
    When i log in to WoW, I have about 15 FPS,
    which is even lower than i had on my old laptop, which had only 2GB DDR2 RAM, a worse GFX Card, and a worse Processor.

    So my guess is, i need to play with the GFX Card settings a bit (or something else)
    But sadly enough, i have no clue on what to change..

    Could someone lend me a hand and give me some pointers please?
