Default Re: Goodbye Onboard NIC. Hello Killer NIC 2100.

It's funny watching you guys argue.

For $50 i'd probably pick it up too just to see what it actually offers. It definitely has some interesting features like the personalized QoS that you can't easily get otherwise... personally I'd rather have that at a router level with something like the D-Link GamerLounge gaming router.

It would be nice having everything offloaded from the cpu too... but with onboard audio and an onboard NIC I really don't think conventional quad cores take too much of a hit, especially if they have hyperthreading.

Glad you're enjoying it though, I'd like to pick one up sometime to see what their software has to offer
