first off, here are my system specs pentium4 2.8ghz processor 256mb RAM on board sound ati radeon 9200 128mb vid card ok, my main problem is lag. ive tried so many different things to get rid of it, but none have worked. i tried messing with sound, all hardware @ full acceleration, it helped a little but not that much. my question here is, what are the best settings that my computer can handle? also, could it be the RAM causing the problem? do i need more maybe? thanks in advance for any help that is offered.

I have a laggy pc also and I think I am beginning to realize that my system is overheating. My computer tends to be noisy and the CPU goes straight to 100% whenever I do something that could be remotely laggy. I'm not absolutely sure is a heat issue, though.

In electronics HEAT is a big issue. The hotter components get the S&^$er they run. Example. people like to overclock thier PC's ( me included ) CPU gets hotter doesnt run as good game is choppy. If you have your computer on a second or third story of a house, set it up in the basement ( providing you live in NorthAmerica were even the cold places are HOT as hell right now ).
