Question

Lag while playing just about any game?

Lately, I have been experiencing lag in some of the games I play on a daily basis, it's a kind of Rubberbandy/Teleport lag thing and it gets quite annoying, now it doesn't happen constantly but at random times I get 10 seconds of nothing but sliding, teleporting back to where I started, and teleporting all over the place. This started happening two days ago but I ignored it because for some reason it went away after like two hours into OverWatch. This started about two days ago so after suffering I finally got to enjoy the games I played. It feels like there's a certain amount of time between me enjoying the game and me lagging, I feel like it happens every 45 - 1:30 seconds.

I know the problem can't be my ISP this time because not too long ago I had a problem with my lag again and right that after came severe internet problems, I had two technicians come in (not on the same day) and replaced both my modem and my router.

I got tired of this earlier today so I uninstalled a bunch of programs that were sitting there on my desktop that I haven't used in awhile, I also updated all my drivers, I uninstalled and reinstalled my wireless network adapter, (When I was having an internet crisis about a month ago, I ended up deleting my networks file for some reason.) for some reason I thought if I connect to my internet and ethernet at the same time it would miraculously fix everything. That obviously didn't work. I'm seriously desperate to find a solution to this problem, I'm getting tired of having random *** connection problems for no reason and then annoying the **** out of my ISP by calling them three times. Anyone have an Idea to what the problem can be?

Games I play
---------------------------
Overwatch
Paladins
Brawlhalla
Smite
League
Minecraft
Battle block theater
Revelation Online
et cetera (etc.)
----------------------------
I use ethernet to connect to the internet and also a desktop that can handle 5g (Which my modem provides)

I usually get from
65.58 - 60 Mbps Download speed
and
4.30 - 5.30 Mbps Upload speed
---------------------------------
Processor Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G2030T
RAM 4.00 (3.89)
x64

P.S hopefully the information above is somewhat useful.

Answer
With just that CPU and RAM

It's no gamer and the experience will be upsetting to the gamer.

I don't understand why gaming was expected to work on this rig. Take a reading of the machines from https://www.reddit.com/r/PCMasterRace/wiki/builds to see what gaming rigs look like.
