    Ethernet Card 10/100Mbits vs 10/1000Mbits

    Anyone using a 10/1000Mbits card and notice any significant increase in speed ?

    I know that it should not have any effect on broadband DSL/Cable, but I would still like to know in real world applications. I notice that 10/100Mbits cards now are going for super duper cheap locally.

    For internet...no
    For LAN transfers....yes....your experience will vary based on quite a few other factors. Most computers made in the past several years and more have been having onboard gigabit NICs.

    Other factors...system RAM, antivirus, hard drive speed, if your switch supports jumbo frames.
