    I will be playing either world of warcraft or call of duty 2 and it seems that the graphics are choppy no matter what the settings are on. I am currently using 2.4 ghz with 2GB of ram. I am hoping that it is not a graphics card problem, but maybe you guys can help.

    Nope, nothing running n the background. It is not a fps problem i am around 50-70 fps for WoW and 30-90 in CoD 2. but while moving it is still choppy.

    I'm running wow almost everyday on mmy MBP; and it runs very smooth, even in SSC its very smooth ( i do notch down the settings quite a it there).

    Be sure to disable AA, since it takes away half my performance.

    That just sounds like a high ping!

    #8 telling you 50-60fps with a ping around 60, il be in an instance with no problems, but when out side its running all choppy, it started happening ever since i updated the MBP to 1.1 i believe.

    Yup, have the exact same problem with COD2 and to the person who said it's high ping, it most definitely isn't. I just gave up and play it on my PC.

    Yes the problem is you're trying to play games on a mac. Get a decent PC or atleast use bootcamp. :p
