    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new here. I need some help with an issue I'm having playing World of Warcraft. The problem started about a week or so ago where my FPS tends to jump from 60 fps down to around 20 fps. It remains at 20fps for around 30 seconds or so then returns back to 60fps.

    I run the game mostly on full settings except for shadows, sunshafts and liquid detail which I have on a medium setting.

    I initially thought this might be a heating problem but I have 4 case fans and I play in a fairly ventilated room. I also checked what temperature my GPU and CPU were running at while playing WoW, turns out it was around 55 - 68 roughly so I don't see that being the issue.

    It could possibly be a driver issue although I have uninstalled and reinstalled the latest drivers for my graphics card. (I did a thorough uninstallation as well using Driver Sweeper)

    Below is my system spec. I have also attached my DxDiag information as well.
