Horrible Framerate drops when turning.

80 Tauren Warrior
Hey all, I'm having an issue with my framerate randomly dropping absurdly low any time I turn, going from a good 70-80 down to less than 10, and then back up once I'm done turning. All my settings are on Ultra, except for view distance which is on Good.

I only have this issue when turning, it works completely fine any other time.

Also, I play in Windowed Fullscreen mode, if that matters.

I'd drop the ultra setting on shadows to be honest.

With the exception of our hard drives our computers are very simular.

I have everything set to ultra except shadows, those are turned all the way down.

I am not sure why, but on any game that has a shadow quality control feature, all of my computers have run horribly with them turned up.
