Good to know ...
Couple that with Roberts advise and you guys just put me on the lookout for a 
new NIC.
Will follow Robert's advice and look for an Intel one.

Robert, could you please pinpoint an Intel card for me? One that can be buyed 
boxed .. stand alone NIC? (nowadays the only way to get NIC seems to be by 
buying one with a motherboard attached to it).

Thanks a lot for the advices guys :)
