Frost mages are for leveling and pvp (and arcane for pvp, due to high burst).
when lvl 70 and ready for raids, then Fire is the better choice.

I'd like to contradict that.

Frost Mage's have good crowd control (freeze, slow etc.) and somewhat decent damage(as all mages do).
This CC ability makes them perform well in pvp as well as solo leveling.

Arcane Mage's on the other hand have good burst damage and easier to play at a decent level(although Arcane is considered a hard spec to play/master at higher gear levels.) Also in a PvE situation Arcane is less gear-dependent then fire spec.
As such Arcane Mage's perform (usually) above Fire Mage's at Fresh-80 and below 5.5k(minimum) gear levels.

Fire Mage's are usually considered the top PvE spec. Fire's problem is it's somewhat harder to play(still easier than many other class/specs) and gear-dependent. Mostly Fire specs (there are a few such as TTW or LB) are used when a player has at least %55 self buffed crit chance + 2600+ Spellpower.

While Arcane and Fire are both considered well for PvE, many other things like gear,gems,glyphs, talents and especially skill&practice are major modifiers.

A skilled Arcane Mage always out-damages a fire mage of lesser skill & same gear.

If you want to be a Mage Dps (which imo is the best class in game), I'd advise you to google and read a few guides(you can pm me anytime for guide links)
PM Keristraza, Starweaver or Starclaws in-game for any kind of help :)

Gnarly Guides have a good range, but I find them very generic.

Note: If you come across guides on, these are good guides but they are always uncredited copies from other places. ... ld_15.html
Look at the frost mage one, it's the same guide, word for word, that is posted on wow-pro.
