As it says im new to the forums. And i need help with my homebrew. I built this system out of a need to have my own computer and had to build it on a budget.
Heres the problem. I built the system MAINLY to play Battlefield 2. Which it does very well when I play single player mode. But if I try to play online then WHAM!!! Lag....... Normally youd think network but I cant tell if its network or Comp lag... Counter Strike and CS:Source play smooth both on and off line...
How can i optimize my comp so that Online it plays smooth.
Ive used older Nvidia drivers and used an overclocking tool and ive used the MOBO's OC tool as well. Ive pushed the CPU to 3.3 and didnt feel like pushing any more.
At this point all my drivers are up to date and neither the CPU or GPU are OCed
My fiance and I have Comcast HSI
