So u are lagging offline? normally low memory would be a factor but obviously not in your case. Latest drivers is another factor. Especially sound drivers- these will cause major lag if not up to date. If u have the option go to sound cards home site rather than windows update. My sound is nforce2 onboard but was crap with latest windows drivers. Went to chip manu. home site for drivers and has been great ever since. Failing all that try adjusting in-game settings -lower graphic settings etc. Try lowering sound quality to 22hz. Experiment. Another possibility would be something running in background. the less programs running at the sametime the better. Check your icons bottom right of windows screen. Disable as much as possible. Hope this helps!
I'm too cool to Post

yeah, what sound card you have? Also, DC is a bit laggy regardless.

What OS are you running? If Windoze XP go to www.blackviper.com & follows his instructions on disabling as many of the built in services that you can. With the specs you have it should run the game pretty good. Like it's been stated already, DC is a bit laggy most times. Do what has already been suggested & get back with us.
