I thought this would be of interest. I would have SWORE (like **** or dang) that interface delay was a server problem or coding problem that would be patched away.
May game used to run "fine" in non-congested areas. In town it would be choppy and take an obscenely long time to draw in characters.
Opening the Abilities/Traits menu or starting crafting took 10-15 seconds sometimes.
I assumed this had to be the server lagging or poor optimization since my graphics card shouldn't have any problems drawing the dang inventory menu.
However, after upgrading my microprocessor and ram (memory, my actual ram in the yard remained the same), all the delay went away. All menus take at "most" 1 second. NPCs and players draw in almost instantly.
I'm only saying this to let people know if you are having severe UI lag it probably won't be "fixed" in a patch. It's probably your computer after all.
I was so surprised by this I wet myself a very tiny amount.
