This is a general question: Can the age of your hardware effect the quality of your online gaming experience? Or does it always have something to do with the way packets are being sent and received? I wish I could be more specific, but it just seems like the older my system gets, the less playable some games get, even when there's no record of packet loss. Consider all other possible ways to make a game run faster or a way to reduce packet loss is irrelevant since there are no changes even after a fresh install of Windows or just by doing good PC maintenance. My system is around 5 years old now.

Of course it can. Which graphics card do you have?

I have an Nvidia 7900GTX and playing a game made back in 2004.
