im wondering if i should overclock my comp cause when i play games like Halo it lags so bad. like one guy fires the assault rifle and the whole comp lags. i have 1.4 GHz processor and 512mb of DDR RAM. my video card is pretty good, 256mb. anyways when u overclock is there any noticable difference? i heard u only get a 10% increase on performance and ur processor fries pretty fast.

well, do you know how hot your proc is running. you should "burn in" your processor. reduces heat, makes it faster.

What type of "lag" are you talking about?

Does the game perform slowly/Glitch?

elitehunter.

when my 500 watt powersupply got fried on my good system, that would happen to me. upgrades or internet doesnt really matter. check all of your components for any kind of damage if the cpu burn in does not work.

dont answer a question that you dont know the answer to, how do you know his PSU didnt burn out? things can fry, still work, but not how they are supposed to.

On a shoot em up game like CS & UT it's all about the ping times baby!

People will be running around in slow motion and I look like I'm on crystal meth flying throw the board racking up those headshots.
