Thanks roadhog. This is what i got for google. i think the pings are generally ok except there are some random 50s and 60s in there, but maybe this is normal.
what i need to do is do the same but to to the server when i am experiencing lag. interesting this is that it becomes much much smoother when i cap my fps at 60, but even then sometimes i get stuttering, but much less. BC2 seems to stutter less, but it is still there.
