For awhile awhile IÂ’ve noticed something on the shelfÂ’s called network cards. IÂ’ve always

Used whatever was onboard and never bothered with network cards before hereÂ’s the

Question is onboard faster or are network cards faster? And if network cards are faster

What are some of the best brands to buy? And how difficult are they to setup or are they

Pretty much the same when it comes to that. As for installing them it looks like they

Would be no different then putting in a graphics card into a PCI slot.

Hes talking about older video cards dumb ass. Anyways it depends if they can send data faster than the motherboard, most newer motherboards integrated network card sends at speeds of 10/100/1000. And the expensive add in cards can send at 10/100/1000, but some still dont send above 100 yet. Just look on the back or side for how fast it can send data.

Use onboard, the only time you will see a difference is if you have many more parts that go faster then the onboard. Most onboards are 10/100 and newer boards have 10/100/1000 but you wont be able to use that with your broadband or SBC because they limit the speed.
