My daughter is running WOW on an iMac core 2 duo with 4 gigs of ram. After doing the latest game update, she is getting a frame rate of 13 with the graphics turned down. Has she about reached the end of the line with that set up or would adding more memory help. The machine is at least 2 years old and I forgot to ask what video card she has.
May the (mass times acceleration) be with you.
Everything is as low as it can go, I can at least move around now. I did find a thread that talks about editing the wtf file.
SET gxApi "OpenGL" in config.wtf file
I will have to do more research on that, I try to stay out of those files. Hoping I can find some more specific information on that. Other users have said that once they get out of the cities FPS goes up so I'm going to give it a shot tonight. Blizzard obviously doesn't put enough Mac users in their beta testing. >.<

You can go ahead and monkey with the .wtf file -- just make a copy of the one you have now first and save it someplace ... if something goes wonky with the one you're playing with, just replace it with the original ;-) (or, you can just get rid of it altogether -- the game will generate a new one with default settings the next time you start the game ... )
I have heard horror stories about trying to move around Dalaran and having frame rates drop precipitously -- the fact that everyone and their mothers are online trying out the new stuff doesn't help. I haven't had any issues so far, though, in the other major cities where there's tons more people on than usual ...
