So, you should probably start by determining if the problem is FPS or Ping, use fraps, or some other FPS monitor to see if your FPS is bad.

I haven't played in about a week or so, so if they've patched, they may have screwed something up, it is beta still after all.

I don't see your GPU listed in those specs. I haven't noticed any FPS issues, but I have noticed alot of what I guess are latency problems since the last patch. Other players movements are not fluid it's like they are warping around and jumping 10 feet in one frame. Might just be my DSL though.

press the "`" key and type /stat fps and it shows your fps press tab and it shows the menu of players next to your name is ping that should help diagnose which is the culprit.
