Default Online games, net speed

I am ready to start doing some online gaming, but I need to know if my net speed is good enough for all online games, MMORPG, shooters, everything.


1.2 megabits per second

Communications 1.2 megabits per second
Storage 147.1 kilobytes per second
1MB file download 7 seconds

So how good is that? It is DSL by the way.

I used to play games on DSL and had no problems. It should be fine with your specs. Memory is key to gaming.

As long as you have dsl/cable your fine. Just make sure you have a good system to run those games.
