I've recently bought the CoD Pack that included WaW and I've been having some issues with lag (also experiencing in CoD 4). I get quite a bit of lag especially when there's artillery going off in game. I've asked other people in game if they had been experiencing lag in game when I had and the majority of the players did not. I run 50-90 FPS in game normally. I assume that the reason might have to do with my game settings because I am able to run other games e.g MW2 and CS:S smooth for the most part. I have a wireless internet connection of 54.0 Mbps. When I join servers, I try to always join servers with under 100 ping. I've also experienced another problem where I randomly completely lose all game sound in game and the only way to fix it is by restarting WaW? Does anyone know a solution to this problem?

This is my computers analysis for WaW off canirunit.com
As you can see for the most part everything is above the minimum requirements except that I'm running on Windows 7. Do you guys have any suggestions for me?

I may have to call shenanigans on your FPS level with that GT220
My friend has the same card, running on a 19 inch LCD and it wouldn't run this game worth a crap. nothing but lag and choppiness and distorted sound at times of explosions.

I gave him an old 8600 gt 256mb card and he has no issues whatsoever in the game now. It even fixed his sound issue for whatever reason.

I would also like to point out that his computer is a Gateway, bought from bestbuy, that was a display model. It has 3 ATI video drivers installed that say their 'working' plus the Nvidia driver 'working', he thinks he has multiple viruses, has never reformatted, has no sound card, and pretty much knows absolutely nothing about PC's. The cool thing is, the ATI drivers won't uninstall and the onboard video doesn't stay turned off in BIOS. Basically this computer is a pile of ♥♥♥♥ that needs some serious tuning, but the game runs good for him, but it didn't with the 220 card.

I suggest trying something different if you know someone who has some extra hardware you can test.
As far as your sound issue goes, there a numerous ideas for that.
Such as plugging in a mic, changing audio settings in game, and through windows settings.

My specs: BFG 260 898mb ddr3 o.c. edition - FPS in WaW: 40-120. All settings maxed. Shenanigans on your 50-90 fps. You don't have to lie to kick it bro.

I'm using a Logitech usb headset, but I do not have this problem in any of my other online games.
