CPU usage while playing World of Warcraft

Before I start playing WoW, my CPU usage is normal.  When I've played the game for more than like 15 minutes, the CPU usage spikes and I get choppy gameplay.  If I alt-esc out of the game, around 2 mins or so after I do it, the CPU usage returns to normal and I can resume play.  The process that is using the most is the System process.  I have the latest drivers for my video card.

Anyone have a similiar problem?

You may want to disable the Blizzard Background downloader.  It has been known to cause CPU spikes when it is downloading patch information during gameplay.  Also, make sure you have the latest drivers for all your components.

I've disabled that and I still have the issue.  Could it be something with drivers?

If any you may want to look at your addons that you are using. WowEcon for instance will shoot the CPU just by playing the game.

I had turned off all my addons a couple times to try and see if that was it, but it still happened.
