FPS vs. killer trees

Iv just built a new system, it has an EVGA 8800GTS, core duo E6400, 2gig g skill ram, vista 64bit etc. Now, im playing WoW when flying throught trees i get FPS drop, why?, my old system had 6800GS and that had no problems with fps drop. What can i do to prevent this?

Try lowering settings (Like AA and AF). With your 6800GS, You were probably running on lower settings, And with AA and AF up real high, It degrades performance alot for better quality, And when you come to an area of alot of detail it drops FPS.
And I think Vista 64bit may have a slight effect on this.

yep, i think Vista 64 bit needs more then 32 bit systems, i have noticed a slight drop in performance,compared to my old computer, i think i need more RAM

I doubt more RAM will make a difference. I reckon it's primarily due to the driver's and other issues with Vista (especially with the 64bit version) - Incompatibility, aswell as BETA drivers etc.

IMO, If you were running XP 32bit you would be running much better FPS and wouldn't have the FPS drops.
