    Depends on a ton of factors... How new is the game, and how demanding is it... What kind of graphic card you have... What kind of processor (dual core, single core)... How much ram...

    But, yes, if your hardware is outdated it is normal for games to use up different amounts of resources... Even up to the point to where you can't play it normally.

    If you are able to run the game, but you get some lag, getting some more ram and/or updating your graphic card would be the best solution...


    Newegg FTW!

    Hm, that seems sufficient enough for an COD1... Are you sure you weren't downloading/uploading something at the time?

    Are you wired to the internet or are you using a wireless adapter?

    • Check to see if PeerGaurdian or your Firewall is limiting the connection.
    • Try forwarding the ports for each game (www.portforward.com).
    • Scan for Spyware/ Viruses.
