nah, games like WoW are tolerable on US servers as they have automated attacks and targetting, however any FPS's need to be local, or you wont have a chance, every 'ms' is important, I get latency's of aroun 5-10 on CS on gamearena servers, anything more than 100 starts becoming unplayable, you'll probably get latencies of around at least 200-300 on a US server.

^ this.

whilst you MAY be able to tolerate some lag every now and then, it nigates the purpose of having your own gaming server.

If its hosted in the US don't bother. High pings kill games.
Host Local. Happy use your PC as the server and I'll vote for you in 2009 Fordmods moderator awards.
