Well, it turns out its not my MTU settings ( I wasnt very surprised ) and it turns out its the operating system. I know, I know, we've all heard it before, windows this, windows that. I've got all the latest drivers for all my hardware ( minus the raid controller that I have turned off ), its a 600p3 w/ 128mb of ram, a 20gb 5400rpm drive, and a Geforce4 MX card, this is WAY more then the system requirements recommend. If I reboot Windows 2k it runs decent for a little while, but if I start loading other applications, even when I close them, the game runs like complete ass. I can hear the hard drive struggle while I am playing because obviously its running rampent with the virtual ram. I check the stats in the game, and sure enough, physical ram is gone, and I am up at 300mb usage on the virtual ram. What the heck gives? I know pc133 ram is cheap, but I dont feel like buying any, is there anything I can do to get this crap fixed? Win2k freaking sucks with direct x, I cant even get my joystick to work in nesticle because win2k, joysticks and directx dont mix suppsedly. JESUS CHRIST I HATE THIS CRAP.
Now dont get me wrong, when it has a ton of stuff cached it runs good, but when a new sound or a new charector comes on the screen, it locks for a few seconds, and most of the time, I die when the lag comes back, and on battle.net I can easily lose a couple of hours worth of experience points.
