Hello I have a problem with my steam games I have Windos XP Media Center 2005 and Windows Home Premium 32 bit dual booted. When I play Counter-Strike: Source or Counter-Strike 1.6 on Windows 7 Home Premium my ping (latency) jumps to about 20%+ more than it normally would be on Windows XP, but when I load up Windows XP I get normal ping and no lag. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit about a month ago and found this problem so I immediately uninstalled Windows 7 and reinstalled XP. I also get more ping (latency) in my ventrilo voice server.
Is it just my computer trying to tell me it sucks and needs an upgrade lol? I just now bought a GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130313
from newegg and bought 512MB more of ram (I would of bought 1GB but low on cash) At the moment I only have 1GB (960MB) lol.
Just wanted to know how I can fix this lag? Or if anyone else has had any problems as mine?
All help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
