well the GTX 480 should handle the 1680x1050 nicely, i would just OC the CPU if it is stock because it could limit your FPS in some situations (if stock).

so if you just have the stock cooler i suggest you grab yourself a CM Hyper 212+ and start OCing ;)  if you dont know how to then search for some OCing guides. google is your friend :)

not really having any trouble, just trying to reduce lag, like on most mmorpgs i play when i go afk i lose animation, it just freezes, and when i come back from afk and clear it out my fps drop way low for a few seconds before coming back up

Are you having Network issues? That could cause that effect. I think that more likely that your excellent hardware letting you down.

Are you having the same problems when you play the game without online opponents? How about turning the graphics setting down to medium, and low?
Still having problems?

internet connection is a 20 meg cable connection with 3 computers and a game console on it

settings being changed high, med or low have no effect on preformance

the fps is basically unchanged when settings are changed, they fluctuate 1 to 3 fps is all

That sounds like a network issue more than a lag due to an underpowered graphics card

I'd test it that if you can .... I have a suspicion it's not your computer.

hmmm i did tests on 3 different sites, all showed about the same thing, when this computer is solo online i had highest meg connection from 18 to 21 meg,
with 1 comp besides this one it fell to 13 to 15 meg,
with 2 comp besides this it fell to 6 to 10 meg
with the 2 comps and the game console i was at 3 to 4 meg connection
this is with all running programs non gaming
when i loaded the hardest games on the computers and one in the console my connection fluctuated greatly from111k to 8.5 meg
