This game is more processor intensive than anything else. Sure a bad a$$ video card wont hurt. In 25 man raiding on my tri core even at lowest settings I still cant get past 30 fps on lowest settings. In arenas I get 60 with v sync on and about 90 with it off this is pretty much ultrad out outside of shadows.
Arenas will run on a trs 80.
If you want to do 25 man raiding you need a solid processor. I would say a quad core at 3.5 gig plus is a must at this point if you wanna avoid the slide shows.
Only need 120 - computer is refreshing screen faster than your monitor can update.
And you Xuin
Refresh rates (time), hertz (1/time) etc are all different ways of saying fps.
I think some top end TVs will do 600hz but need fake frames inserted.
On topic - 8 is aweful.
I play with 6 fps and about 120 latency. My computer is powered by a very tired hamster running on a hamster wheel I've MacGyver'd on to my tower. I'm thinking about upgrading to a coal powered system though. However I'm not a glad, just a !@#$ty duelist. :/

I play at a solid 60FPS constantly, graphics are on Good with View Distance and Particle Density
My roommate got 2200 with me at about 5 fps on a really bad laptop running WLS.
Those saying you can't detect better than 30 or 60 fps are sort of right, sort of wrong.
If you ever actually have a computer that jumps betwen 55-65 fps it's detectable that your FPS is dropping. If you have a computer that runs well over 100 fps the game is noticeably smoother.
If you have a 120hz monitor you can generally see an improvement there as well...
Though the game looks quite nice if you don't drop below 45 or so in my opinion.
On topic: At one point I had 500 fps in WoW. Get @ me.
