Speedtest says this, with nothing loading and all other computers off.

Unless someone in the house is uploading a large file, using all of the upload bandwidth, 800Kbps is more than fine for gaming. The 10Mbps will be what you really notice.
However, you can do packet prioritization through your router. Each router can do it in a little different way, but basically, you tell the router that for this port, IP, MAC address, even application, to prioritize all the packets above any others.
I'd still go for that 10 Megabit connection though!

Upload matters for remote/online gaming. 800kbps would work for 4-5 gaming rigs at once.

I am a complete retard at networking, and I need faster speeds for my gaming. I've got RCN right now, at what I believe is 'Upload speeds up to 768 Kbps/ downloads up to 1.5 Mbps' for around $25 or so. With 3 (almost 4) computers in the house, whenever all of us are using the comps, or when my mom is using the crappy Magicjack, internet speeds go to an all-record low. I've been looking at this: 'Upload speeds up to 800 Kbps/ downloads up to 10 Mbps' for around $30, noticing that the upload speed is only 50 Kbps/ more, but the download speed is like 6 times more (8.5 Mbps). For online gaming, what really does matter? Upload or download speeds?
My budget is up to $50 a month, but I would rather prefer the best deal available
