Default Some ideas plz?

I have a game online that I really like to play but the problem is that it lags. I got my ping lowered by alot. Instead of 1,042 its now 17 big change. Now it still lags. Now i'm just wondering if it could be memory or the video card. I have enough memory, I think. Its a 40gb hardrive with 256 DDR. I mean I used about half of it already but the single player version runs fine with a little bit of lag but still none the less fine (the game is half-life2). So if anyone can give me an idea it would be most appreciated.

Go to www.lavalys.com and download Everest Home Edition and run it.

It'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the hardware that's currently inside your machine. Chances are you do have an onboard Intel video chip, that's probably the problem. Putting in a proper video card and disabling the onboard one is a good thing to do anyway.
