How come I snipe my items and I always lose it by one higher bid
ex 12.00 I lose to 12.50
is this because Gixen is too slow?

I would recommend reviewing the following two eBay help pages:

http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/automatic-bidding.html
http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/bid-increments.html

The bid increment at $12.00 is $0.50. So, if you bid $12.00 and the leading bidder's bid was at least $12.50, then he will win for $12.50. This has nothing to do with speed.

Although there are very good reasons for bidding late, the way to win eBay auctions is to have placed highest bid at any time during the auction.

tonyjoo1993,
In your situation someone bid higher so you lost it.
The highest bidder wins, not the latest. Bidding on last seconds is an advantage only if someone bid based on the current bid so they won't have time to react on your snipe.
