    Hi,
    I've been experiencing really big lag spikes and high latency while playing online games. The problems only developed in the past month. I can browse the internet and download games fine. My internet speeds are 18 down and 8 up which I think are pretty good. I'm using a wifi card. Here are my specs:
    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.4
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit
    Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six-Core Processor, AMD64 Family 23 Model 1 Stepping 1
    Processor Count: 12
    RAM: 16316 Mb
    Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070, -1 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: 255 GB (74 GB Free); E: 1862 GB (1007 GB Free);
    Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC., PRIME B350-PLUS
    Antivirus: Windows Defender, Enabled and Updated
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Since you have the good configuration of the system, the reason behind the lag could be:
    • The system might lag because maybe the system is not fulfilling the game requirement.
    • Reducing the processor workload may help.
    • Consider Your Network
    • Keep all drivers up to date
    • Defrag the hard drive

    It looks like your graphics card has problems
    it is showing -1mb which generally means that it is using default windows vga drivers and only giving basic functions & not gaming capabilities so not using nvidia drivers

    install the latest nvidia drivers https://www.geforce.co.uk/drivers/results/137324
