yeah, I'd rather have Intels own NIC dunno why they can't put them on 
their own boards. Realtek seem to be on all the Intel boards :S

At least I'm adding an Intel PCI NIC.

Thanks, currently I have, well ancient RAM on an old VIA board and it's 
not really any reliable. That with the flacky disk controller on the VIA 
board is my reason to go Intel.
