    What are the chances of a patch being developed by Microsoft Windows: Vista
    team to minimize the choppiness of Vista. I recently puchased an HP, that,
    in all honesty, is over qualified to play World of Warcraft. What steps can
    i take aside from researching and implementing the most recent drivers, will
    minimize this unfortunate inconvenience.

  2. Highly unlikely MS will develop a patch, that would be up to Blizzard and
    maybe your video card and sound card makers. Probably have to keep an eye on
    the HP site.

    Can you give us the specs of your machine or model number and maybe we can
    point out some tweaks.

    Problem with new systems is usually the game wasn't developed when your
    system was made, so you could run into problems, You have all the settings
    cranked to max? what if you try clicking Default in video options, does the
    game smooth out a little?

    Onboard video card or did you upgrade to something a little beefier?

    What Dale said, respond with your hardware specs or just the model number of
    your HP (front center at the bottom, something like "HP Pavilion a1000n" or

    When I played WoW on my Vista x64 system, it ran 100fps+ at all times.
    (limited by sync rate)

    It's not Vista, I'm afraid. It might be a video card driver, though.

    Try playing with your sound settings. that seems to cause the worst
    problems, and that's due to their change to the adio layer.
    Alternatively, Creative makes an "HD" patch for the audigy (but also
    works with other cards) that specifically fixes the sound on a game to
    game basis and WoW is one of these included. I definitely saw a
    difference in my choppiness since setting this up.

    There are also AMD optimization patches if you have an AMD CPU, and nVidia
    has a list of Vista Hotfixes on their site you should look into.
