    Umm--ping is internet time.  Not related to your graphics card unless your computer is so overworked that it can't managed to handle the relatively small task of communication.  Probably not the problem.

    The real issue is the lack of good servers. =(

    Ping is depends upon your internet connection,it's not related to your computer graphics card.
    If you get any high ping ,try to lower your ping rate by using some of the following instructions.
    1.Don't open any videos,stream and check if there any problem in your router.
    2.Make sure there's no browser .exe's still running in task manager
    3.Try to contact your internet service provider and get suitable data plan.
    4.Use any software like Game Booster
    5.Move closer to server
    I am sure,if you follow the rules,you will get chance to reduce your ping rate.When i had a ping issue,i followed the same ways.Now i have better ping rate.So only i would recommend this ways.Then you can check your reduced ping rate using Whoisxy.com

    There are some tweaks you can make to your tcp-ip settings that can lower your ping slightly. Your best bet however is to ditch the dsl and get cable if you can. Go google "tcp ping tweaks".
