I'm using onboard lan right now. If I use a nic card, would it help my processor out at all? You know, kinda like a graphics card would instead of onboard video?

most onboard nics use system resources. a non onboard nic uses less if not none.

i dont think there will be any performance diffrence...but even if there is it will be incredibly small, i would use an onboard solution if you have it.


If it isn't a P6 then it isn't a processor
