I am buying a new computer soon. I want to play some games on it without experiencing lag. What components should i consider to have FPS not be an issue?

I am looking at an i5 (the quad core i5)
1GB video card
a 60GB SSD to run my OS & a 500GB HDD for everything else
6-8GB of RAM

i just dont want to run into lag when there are 50 people on screen

CPU clock speed and the memory bus on your video card are both important factors. If you're going with one of the quad core i5 CPUs the 760 would be better than the 750. As far as a graphics card is concerned, not all 1GB cards are created equally. I'd recommend either a GeForce GTX 465 or a GeForce GTX 460 with a 256 bit memory interface. If you prefer and/or can afford a GeForce GTX 470 or 480 then all the better.

What is your budget?

Also, are you referring to online games as well? If so then you need to realize that is a bandwidth issue and also internet lag/latency.

A higher clocked CPU and a video card with a memory bus/interface of 256 bit or better. The amount of RAM you're concidering is right and with an i5 you're obviously rolling with DDR3 which is right. You need to keep the CPU speed and video memory bus/interface in mind. Also make sure you get a large enough PSU for your graphics card.

Take an old PC, slap a linux distro on it, and dedicate that PC to watch porn... porn is the number 1 cause of lag... LOL...
