Do all the servers have that kind of ping when you list them or does it happen gradually while you play?
There is a posibility you are joining the wrong servers, lag wise.

EVM is a mod made for esf, i dont really know a whole lot on it, so dont ask me any questions about it, plus the administration doesnt really like it when people ask about it so try not to post about it here, if you are interested then go to their forums, i believe they have some.

Anyway, do you have any programs like AIM or adware/spyware going on in the background like grega asked?, they can use your internet connection to do stuff too. Also try ending some programs running in the background using your task manager, just be sure to only end programs that are run by the user though.

Steam like's to download ('update' things that will never be updated) while it's running.
Be sure that Steam is not downloading 'updates', better yet, close Steam, and your FireFox browser.

* Make sure all external programs are closed (especially any download programs!).
* Check your computer for adware/spyware/malware with...
SPYBOT: Search & Destroy (FREE)
Microsoft's Anti-Spyware Beta (FREE)
Ad-Aware (FREE - But PRO Version Is Best) would be a good idea too.

Another thing, it wouldn't hurt to defragment your hard drive(s). You can use the default windows program for this, but I recommend a program called Diskeeper (Faster & Does a better job)

Aside from that, make sure you have the latest updates for things.

MICROSOFT UPDATE ~ http://update.microsoft.com
ATI Graphics Drivers ~ http://www.ati.com/support/driver.html
NVidia Graphics Drivers ~ http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

Oh and, just a tip; Automatic updates don't get ALL updates PLUS having that on can cause lag in-game if it decides to download while you're playing. I recommend turning it off.


ALSO

If you think STEAM is a problem; Open up the games list and right click any non-3rd party game (Ex. Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike, Opposing Force) and click PROPERTIES and change them to not keep the game up to date. Then the game will only update next time you run it.
