Get more RAM.

I second that one. Loads of Ram will help your WoW preformance greatly, especially if you have a lower spec machine.

So basically at 1024x640 I get 20-30 fps in town and outside, at 1680x1050 I get about 10-20 fps in town and outside. But while the fps is different it plays almost identically choppy. Stranger still is that if i pop out to window mode it is noticeably smoother overall. I can't really tolerate playing that way though. So I have been playing on the higher res because it looks better and plays about the same.
I am not sure if this is typical or not, just thought I would share my experience. I have a 20 inch iMac G5 upgraded to 2GB RAM.

The "chop" that you see is probably a function of the game loading new graphics/npc's/reading from your HD when you head into a new area. Once you move into these areas and turn/pan around, the "chop" should disappear after a few seconds and then all should be smooth. This has certainly been my experience. Even in Ogrimmar with >50 players in the city centre!
