Go to the in-game options (video seems correct). I seem to remember an
option that addressess this issue. Try it and see what happens. I'm
suggesting this because you didn't say if this happens with other games. If
not, it may be a WoW issue.

Also, I haven't looked at my Invidia settings for awhile, but I believe
there is an option buried somewhere that may help.
