I have been playing Online Games such as call of Duty World at War for a while now, but continue to have what I call a minor lag issue. During close firefights, the opponents always seem to see me first, which makes it difficult to play. My pings on most of the servers is around 60 and seems to be lower than most of the other players. I have an ATT DSL connection with upgraded down load speeds.
Could my issue be with PC lag? I have a Intel 2 Duo core E 6600 @ 2.4Ghz 1066 FSB @ gig of Ram on an Windows XP system. Geforce 7950GT 512. ASUS P5N32-E 680i SLI Chipset.
Would I benefit from upgrading my video card, and perhaps overclocking?
Or Should I concentrate more on improving my DSL connection?
Any advise would be appreciated.
I would hate to upgrade my video card and get no appreciable improvement in the gaming performance.
Actually it is the full official version of the game with the latest patch. Another example would be that sometimes they will not even be looking at me, and then they turn and Im dead. In a real close fire fight it seems as my system will lag more then at distance shooting. i will try the frame rate suggestion to see how that reacts.
