hi i have just installed guild wars about a week ago. I live in Australia. I am experiencing very bad lag. But the weird thing is that it only occurs after about 10 minutes of playing time. When the lag occurs i can here a funny noise from the inside of my computer. Possibly the hard drive im not sure. My specs are: Pentium 4 3.0Ghz 1Gb of ram Radeon 9600xt with the latest drivers 128 Mb Cable Internet (10mbps) I put the settings in the game all to low to see if it sped things up but no diffrence. I have also defraged my hard drive and seperately defragged the Gw.Dat file. Still no diffrence. Thanks for your time i hope i can get some help.
