I have a basic i7 920 build running a 9800gt and 6gbs DDR3 1600 while using Road Runner High Speed.

When I play modern warfare 2 online I make clear shots for a frag but most of the time I die and in the kill cam none of my shots showup. Could it be my video card is just not fast enough to process the attack?

When people lose sight, they pray for better vision. Even though the path of ignorance was their choice, they believe it to be an outer entity like karma or bad luck - in thus believing an outer cause will cure it. You want change? Stop throwing dirt in your eyes to attain mercy for looking weak.

no it means your lagging through the net, your ping is bad, usually if you have under 3/4 bars your kills and shots will be delayed greatyl

its just because mw2 is a really bad game for online pc gaming because it has no dedicatedserver so you will need to look on the internet for modie fing the game a little to se your ping better but in a game like bfbc2 you might feel the diferences between a good pc and an older pc
