Default does this nic to hardware acceleration?

It's a intel pci-e 1x gigabit ct nic. My local retailer has them in oem for $35. I want to get away from onboard nic (realtek) and wondered if this was hardware accelerated meaning it takes away from cpu usage. Please let
me know.

I'd rather walk with God in the Dark than shine in the light alone.

I don't see that it does TOE anywhere, but it should still be a hell of a lot better than the onboard Realtek. I really like Intel NICs on the desktop and for my servers.

I would just go on ebay and get an intel nic with TOE, they are dirt cheap, even cheaper then the deal you are showing...
