I game using a home-built rig. GPU was replaced recently without any major issues. Just recently got back into playing WoW. My son got older and wanted to try the game so I renewed my sub. My question stems from an issue while playing where either the scenery will lag behind in loading giving me the blank mesh of the landscape without any texture. Big white ghost mountains and the like. Also at times during combat I will get periods where spells lag up and are delayed. I am not the best with diagnosing such issues and I know that I do not have the best internet provider. Is what I'm experiencing likely an internet lag issue or is it something with my hardware (GPU, RAM, other?) Thank you for your time.

Maximus V Formula Mobo (Asus)
2nd Gen i5-2500 CPU
Radeon RX 580 GPU
16 GB RAM
1TB HDD
650W Corsair Power Supply

Was considering intergrating a SSD in addition to HDD and using the SSD as a boot drive. Don't know if that would solve any of the issues I'm having, Built the system like 7 years ago. Only thing upgraded is GPU
