Question curious...WoW processor usage

So those that play WoW what does your CPU run at? When I'm not doing anything and few to no people/NPC's are around my CPU hovers around 80% usage(so WoW never goes below 80% usage), If i go into AV/a City/or around a bunch of people my CPU spikes to 100%. My 1.6GHz CPU barely meets the recommended 1.5GHz speed. Just wondering if those that have CPU's that are in the 2.5GHz+ range what % WoW runs at.

The only thing that is below the recommended requirements is the video card, it is a 64Meg card but it is sub 5000. However, it does meet the required GeForce2+.

My bullshit system:
AMD XP 1900+
1.5 Gig DDR
64 Meg GeForce3 Ti 500

And my internet connection is fair:

Well just ran windowed mode (maximized) and in IF it was around 60 peak, 30-40avg. Not sure in other places.

This is on my P4 3ghz, gto6800 (256mb) card, and 2gb ram

On my 1.6 it was running almost full bore. On my 3ghz it was spiking around 80%, but averaging around 60%.

On my 2.16 Core 2 Duo, I haven't checked yet, but I rarely hear my fans kick on even with WoW going for a few hours, so it can't be pegging it too hard.
