As far as I know, lag specifically deals with Internet. You can ping a specific site to check on lag. You can also check your Internet connection speed: Check My Internet Connection Speed | Internet Connection Speedometer | McAfee

Upgrading memory can boost performance. So, your browser may render faster - but that's not a lag issue.

So you are saying lag will not boost my fps?

I guess those are two questions: fps and lag.

Yes, your processor, video card and memory will impact fps.

Yep.

If your game is smooth offline, but lags online - it's your ISP - not your PC.

If your game games is choppy offline, an upgrade will help - but 'lag' is still dictated by your ISP connection.
