How about my dad? One time he was playing BF2 on a stat padder server (he goes there all day every day, even though a lot of times they don't even get any points at the end of the round, and people have been hacking the sever & peoples accounts on that server, and there's also some bullshit where everybody in that server will crash to desktop at the same time... yet he still goes there all day every day )... well his machine has a Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz, 2x512MB DDR2 800 RAM, probably with horrible timings like 6-6-6-18 or worse (I am using RAM pulled from a dell and those were the timings), and a MSI 8500GT 256MB. Well his game started lagging on him. He wanted me to shut my computer off because he thought I was using too much bandwidth. We get over 600KB/s down and 60KB/s up. I was using less than 100KB/s down and 10KB/s up. Leaving him with over 500KB/s down and 50KB/s up. Every time he has a computer problem it's my fault man, it's not like his piss poor RAM is making him lag. He would probably tell me oh no I have a Core 2 Duo so 1GB is fine. I don't care if you're running quad E8600s at 5GHz, BF2 still eats ~900MB on it's own, and the OS eats ~200MB on it's own, that's over 1GB there buddy, now you're forced to use the pagefile, you're going to lag. That or it could have been server side too, if you get too many HPBs in the server it will lag for everyone. Another one is when I run Folding at Home, he claims to get white diamonds around the character models in Alien Arena. WTF? How can my running F@H cause some stupid shit like that?
