I play Bad company 2.

The conventional wisdom, oft-repeated in these pages, is that an SSD for your system drive will speed up loading time but not frame rates.

If you have a game that does extensive IO while it is running, having those scratch / load files on SSD would help, but games tend to be CPU or GPU bound. So the odds are that you will not see a framerate increase.

The answer to your question is no. When you do anything onlline your are at the mercy of Internet Service Providers, web hosts, connection points, and a variety of technical factors.
