    Perhaps after the update you need to update your graphics driver.

    Well, I'm not too sure how the GPU could affect ping, but I guess anything is possible.

    Another thing you might try is opening up console (hitting the `/~ key usually does the trick, if not, you have to enable it under [Options>Keyboard>Advanced] and checking [enable developer console]) and putting in these commands:

    rate 20000
    or
    rate 30000

    Higher is used for better connections while a lower number is best for a slower connection.

    Then try:
    cl_cmdrate 100
    cl_updaterate 100

    This has fixed my pings and helped my shots register more often.

    This is changing the number of times your computer sends and receives data.

    I hope this helps!
