Post New PC
So decided to finally upgrade the PC and ended up getting.

2 x OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3P1600LV6GK

Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80601920 (Will easily OC to 3.2ghz or more on air cooling)

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

Eventually will get a pair of SSD drives when the price comes down a little bit more on them. I've already got a EVGA GTX 280 and memory is so cheap right now I couldn't resist doing 12gigs.

12gb!!! That's awesome!

My system has been running Aion pretty smooth (that is, the system I built for WAR). Smoother than WAR, in fact. I'll add some RAM and bump up the video card if I notice trouble when I hit the big RvR

Amazing what a good game engine can do. Warhammers game engine is just horrendous.

My PC runs Aion pretty damn good..

As for LAG.. That's not a game engine thing.. Thats a server thing..

This always irks me when I see people say "I am lagging" in references to horrible FPS they're getting, which is two completely different things.

Lag = Bad latency.

FPS = Frames Per Second.

Now the two can be related, if the client is made to not update correctly if there is LAG you will probably get some Frame rate drop. Or if you machine sucks balls and your frame rate is bad, you can appear to be rubber banding all over the place(think window dragging in daoc).

To be fair; this game (at least as far as an engine is concerned) has been out for quite some time--certainly more than the 1-2 months you're asking for.

FPS = First Person Shooter.. :P

Lag in the classic sense can mean anything that slows your connection down.. Could be modem related,
server related or client related.. Or even user related in the case of old DaoC when some peeps would do
the old window shake technique..

Usually Lag in MMORPGS is related to servers however as there is so much info being processed at any
given time that the server can lag and in turn it lags 50-100% of all players on that server.

Lag in FPS's usually meant someone had a slow ass PC so it slowed everyone to keep the slow pc current
or the PC hosting was slow and the PING rate was high for everyone and got worse for those further away.

I finished the build last night.

Managed to get a stable 4ghz OC on air cooling, but was running supper fucking hot.

So I ended up going with a 3.6ghz oc and Aion run like a champ with everything on high at 1920x1200.
