What version of the ATI driver are you using ? Is 3D loaded and running ?
The answer to these questions can be found by typing the following....

glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version string"
glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"

In addition, are your running wow  in opengl or direct3D mode ?
How much memory does you X700 have ?

The error message you mention is benign, you get that message on a 
system that runs wow just fine.
