    the output won´t do anything to your fps. Whats the exact model of your card?

    What resolution are you using on the external monitor/tv? 1920x1080 (1080p) might be too much for the 4550 to handle. Try to lower it to 1280x720 (720p).

    If available, you should always use HDMI.

    For what understand, Wow has been designed to be playable on lesser hardware (so that ppl in countries with other economies can play it). That might have changed from the beginning though, I dunno with the expansions. You should be able to get good fps IMO.

    Have done any benchmarking?

    I too am on the old ATI and have tweaked the game settings to get somewhere around 32+fps,.. or at least that's what I was getting in Durotar today.

    I'm sure big cities might not be as good. Dunno, I'm on a trial account not sure if I'm gonna stick around or not.

    Oh one more thing that might help. I downloaded this software called game booster. Just using the free version I was able to boost my performance on all games somewhat significantly. I think it helps tm2's especially because of our slow processors. I've been using it for a while, certainly couldn't hurt. Moved Fallout3 (on low graphics settings) from unplayable to "good enough."

    Game Booster 2.0 Free Download, Speed Up PC for Top Gaming Performance

    The free version is more than sufficient, though the full version seems to be on sale at the moment.
