  1. Heya guys, I'm having a problem with my computer. It's goes kinda like this. My processor is somehow connected with my internet and if I use processing power, it takes up my internet connection. For example, lets say I'm downloading at 70 KB a seconds...then I start to play a game like Warcraft III, the download speed goes dramitically slow. I mean, like 50 KB less.. Does anyone know the problem?
    :(

    Specs:
    700 Mhz
    256 MB RAM
    1.5 Mbps Download / 128 Kbps Upload

    Regards,
    David

    Yes! Games require processing power.
