Well...I've been noticing, when downloading with torrents, PAL games usually have more seeders. I dont use PAL games, I use NTSC(US) formatted games and they always have a low amount of seeders. So It usually takes me over a day.
I just leave my computer on overnight, so when I get back from school its done or close to being done anyway.
(Im also too lazy to convert the PAL games to NTSC, not like im in a hurry to get a certain game anyways)
