Lower Memory Usage?

Hello Win7Forums,

I'm playing a game on steam called Garry's Mod.
When i play on a online server, it uses over 600k memory, wich increases my ping!
It's really annoying, and i thought if some of you tech guys knew what to do.
All answers are aprriciated!

What ping do you get on the severs? The 600k memory as you say the application is using up is causing your net to get higher pings timings?Also i'm assuming that's how much memory shows up being used in task manger unless that's how big the packets are that are being sent to you and that's what you meant.Could be likely more a connection problem or the sever is not sending you the packets fast enough or your connection is to slow to get them thus increasing your ping times.How fast is your internet connection and do you only get this problem while connected to this particular sever?

I have around 350 ping. My internet connection is on 10 mb/s
I just need it lowered, that is what causes the ping.

Is the sever local or is it in another country,do you get high pings on other severs like this?
