    Under 10.6.4, when I installed the 4.0.1 patch for WoW, the Radeon HD 5770/5870 on the Mac Pro could only select "Low" and "Fair" quality presets. This has been fixed with with 10.6.5. You can now choose "Good," "High," and "Ultra" presets.

    Also, if you use manual quality settings, you could only choose up to "High" for Shadow Quality and "Fair" on Liquid Detail. Those are also fixed.

    Same here, before I couldn't get better than 10fps on low settings. I now have 60fps on max settings. :)

    It depends on where you are; like if I'm in a Vanilla city like Ironforge I get 100+ with all my settings on recommended(good with 3-4 on high) but in Northrend I'm in the 40's when I'm flying around and there's a lot of detail. Raiding in 10.6.5 is a little smoother with barely any slowdowns when there's a lot of spell effects but I've also noticed my temperatures higher(86-88C @ 5000rpm on SMC) so I capped WoW at 30FPS.
