Also you should look at SSD hard drives as I'm almost sure you're still using a HDD platter. Your hard drive connection type is SATA 3gb/s, you can pick an SSD that's designed for 6gb/s with no downside other than you wont be using it to it's fullest potential. Using an SSD will drastically increase your loading screen times, but wont do much to improve your frame rates outside of the first 10 seconds of combat - After this point the hard drive has loaded everything it needs usually.

If you get an SSD you'll want to install Windows and WoW on it and that's it. Every other program goes onto a seperate hard drive. I run a 120g SSD for Windows and another 250g SSD for games with a 3tb old style hard drive for storage.
