Quite right, I have several nvidia boards and the speed on them in Gbit mode is simply fantastic. The bottleneck is usally the drive that's getting written too. There was an issue with Vista on Nvidia nic's being limited to 100 mbit speeds, I don't know if that has been cleared up, but on linux or XP I haven't had an issue with them.
No announcement yet.
Which of these three would suck less on Linux: GMA 950, GMA X3100, or GeForce 7000M?
