I've moved this over to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum, which is an okay place to ask. This sounds like something other users here would have some experience with.

From my experience is OK. Just depends on how demanding is the game. Or how many assholes are using the internet in your house. PS I say assholes because people pick the worst time to use up the internet

Download and upload speed don't necessarily mean a good connection while playing games, it all depends on where the server you are connecting to is located and the type of game. You should be able to get a decent connection assuming you don't live in the middle of nowhere.

Also depends on the type of internet connection you have. For example, internet connections provided via satellite have good maximum speeds but there is a longer than normal lag time between initiating an action and the system at the other end receiving the instruction. That could end up as a 2 second lag between ordering your character to dodge and the action actually occurring. In a fast-paced first-person shooter a 2 second lag is an eternity.

What type of games are you wanting to play?
