make sure theres a direct path to and from keyboard/mouse to the reciever ... some times thats what it is so it looks like it lags on games and desktop

i have no programs running during it. i also have a dirsect path and it dosen't work. oh and the comp is actually diff. but it is better.
 
Well, do you still have your wired mouse from your old computer? if you do, try plugging it in and checking if that is really the problem, I have had trouble with wireless mice before, so that is why I only ever use wired mice now.

I have suffered the problem that you have.

THere are a few things it could be. But you kinda need to tell us the specs of your computer. Or at least the graphics card you are using. And more information like what kind of internet, wireless or hardwire, what kind of router, etc.

Also try changing your display settings around to see if that will work. Or if putting the games in window mode will do anything for you.

update drivers, card should run it just not HDR, 4x MSAA, and all bells and whistles but should run it fine on medium or low settings fine.
