    It's doubtful that a new NIC or different brand will increase your throughput. Basically, a NIC is a NIC is a NIC. However, 3Com and Intel NICs are currently the best in the business, so have at it, if you feel so inclined.

    You're more likely to benefit from tweaking. Have you applied the appropriate registry patch yet?
