System Spec's:
AMD Athlon Phenom 9600 BE, 2.3ghz x 4, not overclocked.
4GB Corsair ram, 800mhz
WD 500GB SATA Drive x2
WD 320GB SATA Drive x2
XFX GF 8800gt 640mb ddr3
MSI K9A2 CF-F (790X chipset)
Vista Ultimate

All drivers and firmware are up to date, and I'm just not stunned with the performance of this system.

I primarily play WoW, and I'm a multiboxer, the system gives amazing scaling for running many copies at a time (5x with no problems), however the performance on a single copy is just average at best. I have friends with similarly configured systems that blow me away performance wise...

Any advice?

I was reading about the TLB patch and was wondering if disabling that would help? If so, how... or any other advice.

What exactly problem do you have ?
I might be an insufficient internet connection.

Framerates are no where near what I would expect, 20-30 in high pop areas, 10-15 in high intensity encounters, nothing more than 60-65 out in the boondocks with nothing intensive on the screen. I really don't care at all about the 60-65, however I'm concerned about the 10-15 in the high intensity encounters.

I'm on a very solid network connection and I can guarantee that is not the issue.

Interestingly enough, I disabled the TLB fix and gained 2500 on 3dmarks05... up to 14k from 11.5k... I'll see how this performs in game tonight.

You may want to try different drivers too. This could be an issue.

Something has to be wrong. I play wow on my phenom 9600 with geforce 8600 gt 256meg card from a year ago and i got 60fps lock with the exception of shat which fluctuates crazily no matter your pc.
