HELP I have no idea how to configure my Desktop to get World Of Warcraft to play

I love playing the game but now that I'm single I don't have anyone to set my configurations to make it run smoothly. I just got this Desktop
HP ENVY Phoenix 810qe desktop
i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz
12.0 GB RAM
x64 processor
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 745
8 Series/ C220 Chipset SATA

I have no idea how to configure ingame settings or the Graphics GeForce Experience game launcher to make the game play. I was having issues prior to launch of Warlords of Draenor but now always frozen. I am unable to hook up direct to modem but has a built-in Wireless-AC 7260
I am thankful for any help and can walk through simple instructions, (but please don't assume I know anything, because I'm limited here) Thanks

  1. That is a big CPU for a limited GPU imo..

    You can try lowering settings ingame by going to options and video/graphics settings lowering from ultra/high to low/medium graphics.

    Yes, thanks. I have tried to adjust the graphics. I've played with lowering the video setting from Ultra - Low. I am wondering if there is a blend of "a little more of this terrain, disable this process, increase that" that might do the trick, or if my 45Mbps isn't going to work if I am wirelessly connected to Router/Modem instead of directly...... I thought this machine with be more than adequate (I've run it on far inferior in the past) but can't keep a connection and in game freezes are amuck. I don't know if its due to the launch or if I just don't have my settings adjusted properly. :/

    To be completely honest with you.. Your CPU is fine, your wireless adapter might be bad, or you may be too far from the router since you get connection issues.

    If you lag in games, you need to lower the graphics since your graphics card isn't the best out there..
    Lower stuff like shadows all the way down, preferably OFF, lower resolution, remove anti aliasing and anti anisotropic filters, put textures to low etc etc..

    If it then runs smoothly, you can try to adjust individual settings a notch upwards to see if that runs as you'd like.
