Framerate choppy in online games

Why whenever I play online games that have quite a bit of people in one place ex PlanetSide2, ARMA II (certain missions) the framerate gets really choppy. I got a HP computer with an upgraded PSU-520W, upgraded video card gtx 660ti and a upgraded processor AMD FX-8350 (black edition) no oc'd please tell me any advice im about done with this lag. I personally think its because of my low PSU wattage or processor. thanks

  1. it might as well be the Internet connection too. 8350 is a decent cpu for streaming gameplay. I would start doubting the ISP and then move on to psu and cpu.

    share more info on the internet connection and full system specs. lets see what others have to say.
  2. So the internet connect can effect framerate in online games??

    If you don't have a problem when playing offline, then it would be very safe to say it is your ISP. Perform a speed test at speedtest.net. I would recommend at least 10down and 1.5up, at least. If your not getting that your gonna see lag.
  4. Yea I have no problem playing offline but I upgraded last week to an 8350 from a 8150 should I have done that cause now I know its my internet. I think im going to take it back. My internet is 6 down and 1 up but after I go over 60gb it goes to 0.2 down and like 0.1 up. Its horrid im switching isp's soon.

    That is very bad. 60gb is weak your ISP is crap. Sorry. But that is most definitely your problem.
  6. yea should I return my 8350 and get put in my old 8150 cause now that i know its my internet i think it was a waste of money
  7. thats your call about switching out, i'd stay with the 8350 since it does have better performance, also, even with an amazing broadband connection....sometimes you can experience lag when playing online games, it all depends on how crowded the servers are....mmo's are really bad for this sometimes
  8. also, you may have an older modem and may have to contact your isp about getting a newer one if you're paying for more speed than what you're getting
  9. No no, the ISP is retarded, they only allow a 60gb data cap at 6mb/s and after that it goes into "slow mode" which is 0.20mb/s which is God awful
  10. and wont the new steamroller cpus be coming out soon? Shouldnt I just stay with my 8150 for the time being and save the money I have for a SR cpu?
  11. i thought those weren't coming out until 2014, i could be wrong though wouldn't hurt to do a quick search on it i suppose, and yes it sux having a data cap, not sure about your location, but that's unheard of here
  12. So I should just keep the piledriver for now yea, and im in Alberta, Canada out in the country. I just found another isp that offers dsl, right now I have wireless and its garbage. My current ISP -> http://mcsnet.ca/
    The ones I want -> http://patriotcomputers.ca/ or http://www.lightspeed.ca/

    Here is a list that are available to me (well are supposed to be) -> http://www.canadianisp.ca/cgi-bin/ispsearch.cgi

    Thanks for helping me everyone.
  13. yeah, rf is terrible, a good hardline will help online gaming quite a bit, try to get cable if you can, the signal will be better....dsl has to travel through phone lines and they can hit a lot of interferance....much more than what cable will
