I'm not 100% sure where to put this but here goes.

Someone linked me to the following site http://www.humanbenchmark.com/tests/reactiontime/index.php and when performing the test on my computer I would get consistently around 240ms, BUT when I walk into my brother's room I took the test on his computer and had no trouble getting under 200ms.

What I'm trying to figure out is if there is something causing 50ms of lag on my computer, and if it can be fixed.

Here are the differences between the computers (testing done in google chrome on both):


BenQ lcd 5ms response
Razr Abyssus & MX Revolution (tried both)
Quad Core Cpu (AMD)
GTX 260


Windows XP
BenQ lcd 6ms response
Logitech g15
Dual-core AMD
8800 GT

Let me know if any more information would help.

Do you have an anti-virus program running in the back ground on your computer?

This may be one of the many reasons why yours might be running slower.

But there could be other reasons as well.
