Looking for best equipment for use with 1Gb internet from Suddenlink

Hello, I am currently running a Motorola surfboard modem SB6190 and a netgear R8300 router. Looking to upgrade but was wondering if upgrading to the gaming routers were worth it.  I have suddenlink 1Gb internet which is the best I can do in my area at the moment.

Re: Looking for best equipment for use with 1Gb internet from Suddenlink

It depends on your usage. 

Some would say that yes they help a lot. 

others would say optimize you current setup. 

like if you're currently gaming over wireless, you'll see a benefit to hardwiring in your setup.

Or if you're using wireless 2.4ghz, to move to 5ghz. 

A lot depends on your current setup, how well its working, and even if you're a hardcore gamer.

What is the kind of ping you're getting to the game you're playing? Do you experience a lot of lag/buffering on devices?
