no it may not lag. it will just be fine but you will find it hard to kill people.

Well its actually Age of Empires so not that graphical etc....So its not like its anything big as far as gaming. Broadband is not available in our area yet ( live out in the country ). It seemed to play without to bad a lag at 42kmps but since we moved we only connect at 24kmps with dial up so I guess where screwed anyway you look at it.

200mbps upload??? That over 25MB a second upload speed, and only 2000kbps download? That's only what, 250kb/s download? Makes no sense...

So your upload speed is faster than your download speed? Never heard of that one...

Who cares about seeding .
