World of warcraft is the game i'm talking about. I really believe it is the cpu is way to slow to see a big diffence in game play. i upgraded the card hoping to see 60 fps on ultra and 1080p. I will get back to you on what my motherboard is later. I'm not where i can check it out. I will grab power supply also.

I would like to ask another brains scratching question. I did get the hd 6850 to work for a few hours before everything went south. I've been playing wow for about 3 years now. My computer rund all seetings at about the same fps. For instance, low setting 20's fps, ultra settings 20's fps, and medium the same.
 
yea this may sound the problem, but also check that you're with the latest AMD drivers for the GPU, i'm running CCC 11.8 and the GPU works like a charm.
i would also try to overclock the GPu and CPU a little up and see if any increase in performance happening
