first i apologise for posting in the cpu section but its the quickest way to get a responce.

im getting horendious lag when playing bf vietnam, i start of with a ping between 60 and 90 which is normal for my isdn single channel but after a bit of playing it spikes to 400 or 700 as most online gamer will tell u its quite hard to shoot someone which is only a ghost of someone when actually there standing behind u scoring knife kills :( anyhoo im not to sure what info/details u need of me if any that will help to solve this problem

If u do things right.... People won't be sure you've done anything at all......

When you play the game make sure that you all as many programs as possible. I know that when i play an graphic intensive game like BFV and am downloading or even burning a dvd then my ping is sky high.

ive turned off all background software that i can see. but what i dont understand is that im ok for the first 5min then i hit a ping of 800ish. now this part is really strange when im playing with a ping of 800 i can still run around fairly smooth and still score frags only jumps now and then, i really dont get whats going on :s

now if i was to play CS 1.5 and have a ping over 200 i consider that unplayable

please guys im at my wits end please help
