Default Re: wat causes the most lag

In games, the most lagg is caused by graphics card. Not having enough ram in your computer, causes lag of all kinds, and having a crappy processor, makes the whole computer slow.. And as long as the hard drive isnt full, then that USUSALLY isnt a problem, unless, you have a bunch of mindless shit on it, with no use. Or if you dont defrag, or clean it up.

when i lag it is usually because of the graphics card if it isnt able to deal with so much action going on in a game. Like warcraft for instance it lags alot because of the huge battles and such.

I never lag

But it's usually the RAM if you have a good CPU.

PS. I sometimes, almost never lag.

Is ECC RAM considerably slower than normal RAM, say we're talking about ddr400?

everything is slowing u down!

Are u just meaning like windows starts up slowly and takes a long time for some programs to start etc? If so then it's most likely the ram.
