No problem. He build his own gaming rig and helped me through a ton of questions for getting my laptop, which handles games like WoW and Bioshock Infinite like child's play. :D

It's fun. I play at least a game every night. But, it's a high ' troll ' community. It's hard to find decent players. I really like it despite all that crap though.   Anyways, I was just wondering!   I can't help you with computer stuff, SO knows way more about that than I do.

Well, it could be a number of things, from your Firewall being up, to your ISP's having low download times. I'd go to www.speedtest.net and see where your connection is rating at, if it's up to what you're paying for(We discovered that although we were paying for 35 mbs down at night it would drop to like 12 mbs down because we didn't have a dedicated connection. We then switched ISP's and have had no issues since then.), then I'd double check your firewall. If that doesn't work then you can always try using an actual connection, like a Cat 5 running to your modem.

When I d/led WoW on my laptop(I have Quad Core, too.) it took about an hour to get it d/led with the patches.

I've been wanting to try LoL for a long time, but everyone I know who plays says it's full of asshats who are super rude and mean, lol.

Yeah. It's mostly true. It also will probably take awhile for any new member to figure it out so a lot of the people give up easily because of that AND because it's full of cuntrags. Since the game has been out, they have updated and added new things to it WEEKLY so even as an older member, I am still ' learning ' the game, in a sense. 

I play with SO and a couple of his friends from work some times.  It's the only way to make the game fun. Playing with people you know.  It's a free game so no wonder there are so many trolls.
