Performance Doesn't effect ping.

two other things do though.
background applications/programs downloading unnoticed, or
someone else on the network may be
downloading/uploading/streaming videos, because all three
would increase ping by a huge amount as such.

turn off all other computers or unplug all cables in your
router/gateway apart from your own gaming one.
