while all i can say is it will be a improvement. but how much improvement is depending mainly on your DSL company.. but you should be at least get a 50 ping diff .. depending on the modem u get.. that is a great price for dsl thou i would defintetly try it out and see.. if it is not worth it get a modem called "gamers modem" by 3com which will improve your ping by 20-50..
it's about 120 for retail price but u can get it on egghead.com for a lil bit cheaper but for all those people i have recommneded it to and sold it to were all very happy with the difference between there old modem vs there new modem.
