Don't forget Internet Ping Test. Your connection quality is also important.

4 gig of which memory specs?
2.5GHz is not bad but it's not good either.

What games do you play?

That gave my connection an A. My connection is crap. It must be having a good day, lol.


On topic, yeah, your system is bottlenecked to your connection speed if it's slow and you are trying to play a game online...

Nothing amazing, gets the job done though. My ping is always pretty nice.

It's the only internet connection even available where I am right now. (DSL with SBC).
