If you computer is relatively new, then it should have more than enough horsepower to run ET. I'm talking CPU, RAM, motherboard, drives, etc.

Your network latency (what most people call "ping") is probably unrelated to your computer's hardware, and it can be caused by a number of issues:

* simultaneous bandwidth-heavy applications running on your PC (ex: torrents, movies, etc)
* poor wifi/wireless connection (due to a weak signal, channel/frequency saturation, etc)
* poor LAN/wired connection (due to network congestion, network appliances, etc)
* poor Internet connection from your ISP (too many reasons to list here...)

If you could describe your computer model or hardware, wired/wifi network, and ISP setup, then we may be able to better diagnose your problems and suggest solutions.
