I don't have one of those cards to test this with, but if the problems 
are post patch 2.2 then the driver may be fine. Try starting the game 
with '-nosound' and see what that does to your FPS. There have been some 
serious CPU usage issues with WoW 2.2 and 2.22 that are still being 
worked on. When I was testing this on my system (Nvidia graphics) I had 
high CPU usage and horrid FPS, but with -nosound I was back up to 50-60 
FPS. Sorry if it is the card/drivers, but since the sound overloading 
systems is a known issue it may be worth testing.
