I keep getting an out of date driver message on the login screen of World of Warcraft.  I get booted off game usually once each playtime and the game is pretty laggy even on low graphics settings. I bought a driver updater called DriverUpdate from Slimware Utilities but I am still getting the message.  I suppose I need to buy a new graphics card or a new tower, but I am unsure what to do and if it's as simple as buying a new graphics card, I have no idea how to put one in.

Thank you!

I am getting a message on the login screen of World of Warcraft saying my driver is out of date. I bought a driver updater called DriverUpdate from Slimware Utilities and have run that and supposedly updated my driver. I am still getting the out of date driver message at the login screen, the game is pretty laggy, and it will boot me off at least once each playtime.

There's a little more to it than that.

 Download and save the driver.

Then have a look here.
