Hello I meet all the recommended requirements for bf4 and i Still get lag.I run from somewhere of 30-60 fps using the auto for video settings.It looks like I run at medium graphics.I still get the issue when I run in low graphics.I use a Ethernet cable for my connection.All of my drivers are up to date.I do not use any game boosters of any sort.My brother has the same rig as I do and he doesn't experience any issues with lag.The only difference is that he as a AMD graphics card that allows him to run at high graphics and a little bit extra ram.Please help me I would love to solve this issue and enjoy the game.I think it might be my hard drive.My hard dive was made in 2007.I don't know the Catch or the rpm for I have no idea how to tell.My specs are:

GPU: x2 Nvidia GTX 550 ti(SLI)
CPU: AMD FX(tm)-6100 six-core 3.3GHz
Memory: 8 GB corsair vengeance
Mother board: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 (rev 1.2)
Operating system: Windows 7 pro 64 bit (6.1, build
7601)
current resolution: 1680x1050, 59Hz
Direct version: DirectX 11
Storage: HDD 465 GB

i just need a little more info, are you on wifi? did you try speedtest? does this happen at all on other games? did you try to filter by ping? and hdd shouldn't matter because the game loads to your ram, that's what the loading screen is for.

I do not use Wifi I use a Ethernet cable to connect to my router.My speed test scores are:
On the Pittsburgh PA pair networks I get a ping of 30ms.My download speed 29.62Mbps and a upload speed of 6.0Mbps
On the Pittsburgh PA Consolidated communications with a ping of 166ms my download speed is 0.65Mbps and my upload is 3.14Mbps

This only happens with Bf4 and I join servers that have around 60 ping.

Summary of Noteworthy Events + –
Minor Aberrations –

Certain TCP protocols are blocked in outbound traffic
Network packet buffering may be excessive
Your computer's clock is slightly slow

Address-based Tests + –
NAT detection (?): NAT Detected +
Local Network Interfaces (?): OK +
DNS-based host information (?): OK +
NAT support for Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) (?): Not found +
Reachability Tests + –
TCP connectivity (?): Note –
Direct TCP access to remote FTP servers (port 21) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote SSH servers (port 22) is allowed.

Direct TCP access to remote SMTP servers (port 25) is prohibited.

This means you cannot send email via SMTP to arbitrary mail servers. Such blocking is a common countermeasure against malware abusing infected machines for generating spam. Your ISP likely provides a specific mail server that is permitted. Also, webmail services remain unaffected.
Direct TCP access to remote DNS servers (port 53) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote HTTP servers (port 80) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote POP3 servers (port 110) is allowed.

Direct TCP access to remote RPC servers (port 135) is blocked.

This is probably for security reasons, as this protocol is generally not designed for use outside the local network.

Direct TCP access to remote NetBIOS servers (port 139) is blocked.

This is probably for security reasons, as this protocol is generally not designed for use outside the local network.
Direct TCP access to remote IMAP servers (port 143) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote SNMP servers (port 161) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote HTTPS servers (port 443) is allowed.

Direct TCP access to remote SMB servers (port 445) is blocked.

This is probably for security reasons, as this protocol is generally not designed for use outside the local network.
Direct TCP access to remote SMTP/SSL servers (port 465) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote secure IMAP servers (port 585) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote authenticated SMTP servers (port 587) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote IMAP/SSL servers (port 993) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote POP/SSL servers (port 995) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote OpenVPN servers (port 1194) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote PPTP Control servers (port 1723) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote SIP servers (port 5060) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote BitTorrent servers (port 6881) is allowed.
Direct TCP access to remote TOR servers (port 9001) is allowed.
UDP connectivity (?): OK +
Traceroute (?): OK +
Path MTU (?): OK +
Hidden Proxy Detection (?): OK +
Network Access Link Properties + –
Network performance (?): Latency: 24 ms, Loss: 0.0% +
TCP connection setup latency (?): 33ms +
Background measurement of network health (?): no transient outages +
Network bandwidth (?): Upload 5.5 Mbit/s, Download >20 Mbit/s +
Network buffer measurements (?): Uplink 480 ms, Downlink is good –
We estimate your uplink as having 480 ms of buffering. This level can in some situations prove somewhat high, and you may experience degraded performance when performing interactive tasks such as web-surfing while simultaneously conducting large uploads. Real-time applications, such as games or audio chat, may also work poorly when conducting large uploads at the same time.
We were not able to produce enough traffic to load the downlink buffer, or the downlink buffer is particularly small. You probably have excellent behavior when downloading files and attempting to do other tasks.
HTTP Tests + –
Address-based HTTP proxy detection (?): OK +
Content-based HTTP proxy detection (?): OK +
HTTP proxy detection via malformed requests (?): OK +
Filetype-based filtering (?): OK +
HTTP caching behavior (?): OK +
JavaScript-based tests (?): OK +
DNS Tests + –
Restricted domain DNS lookup (?): OK +
Unrestricted domain DNS lookup (?): OK +

DNS resolver properties (?): Lookup latency 100 ms +
Direct probing of DNS resolvers (?): +
DNS glue policy (?): OK +
DNS resolver port randomization (?): OK +
DNS lookups of popular domains (?): OK +
DNS external proxy (?): OK +
DNS results wildcarding (?): OK +
DNS-level redirection of specific sites (?): OK +
Direct probing of DNS roots (?): OK +
IPv6 Tests + –
DNS support for IPv6 (?): OK +
IPv4, IPv6, and your web browser (?): No IPv6 support +

well it said that when playing games and downloading you ping is spiking to 480ms. this is most likley your lag. do you have anything at all in the background while playing bf4? try closing the browser when you start a game. also bf4 is origin so steam doesn't notice a game running therefore steam will download away while your internet suffers. close steam and any other open program when you're in game. give it about 2 min and see if you have lag still

No I haven't reinstalled it yet.I started messing with my processes more and I found out that oovoo was causing most of lag.Even with oovoo out of the equation i still get a good bit of lag.So ill try reinstalling it to see what happens.

it seems there is your issue then. i would say there is a possible process that attempts to share the bandwidth with bf4. the open browser that the game forces you to have open just seems to compound the problem.

I reinstalled bf4 there was no difference.Maybe its just the servers are having problem or something.

Well I am guessing that It might be my graphic cards.They are old and Ive read that bf4 cant really support SLI or crossfire to well let alone a single graphics card. Also with the latest and "greatest" patch for bf4 you would think that it would help.Wrong!It actually made my game even worse.I now experience a lag spike every second.The game is now literally unplayable.I did go into the video tab and ran a video performance test.I got around 80-90 fps.But it did say that i had bad connection and something about packet loss.So it might also be my Ethernet cable.I am unsure if this is the reason so I will go out and buy a new one.If the problem continues then im going to have to spend money on ether a Radeon 270x or a GTX 760.I might also thing it might be my monitor because it was made in 2007 and only has 720p HD.If buying a new monitor and graphics card does not work I am going to have to call it quits and wait for bf4 to patch.

Prob won't help, I'm having the same problem... I got a 7950, 16g 1866mhz RAM, FX 8350 4.2ghz 120g, 250g ssd, an Tb hdd... Thought the same thing an got the VG248QE for the no lag an light boost hack. No help at all... It has to be the game. My net speed is slower than yours tho,/only get 18mbs. So your not the only one with his problem, you can still get the upgrades just don't expect it to help with the lag in MP matches.

P.S
Every other game I own on pc runs great online an off... We'll Thief runs kinda slow at 30 fps on max
