Hi, I have been building systems with Intel boards for sometime now and believe them to be reliable and run forever. I also have used other boards at times. I suggest you look at the Intel D865GLC-L, it has LAN support among others. Go to the intel site and search for the D865GLC-L board and you can read the specs on it. The board you are interested in is also a good board check on the intel site for specs.
Some folks are interested in boards for various reasons like gaming or over clocking and Intel may not fit their needs for that area.
Good luck on your search.
