How to Diagnose and Improve In-game Lag and Latency Issues

It is safe to say that PC gaming is vastly different to console gaming. Players on PC have a much greater ability to customize and refine their experience, and the most powerful PCs put consoles to shame in terms of the quality of the experience that they offer.

However, with the almost infinite number of potential hardware and software combinations for PC gamers, there are pitfalls to be avoided.

This means scouring locally to find the right one for you. And finally, certain games may end up being restricted to certain areas of the world for various reasons.
