    Shame it doesn't have a proper tech spec... I bet underneath that heatsink there's a lovely Realtek 8139 chip :P

    When you can pick up a highly configurable Intel server NIC for less than £90!! I just wonder what premium they are charging?

    It's obvious... because it's got "gamer" on the box and a coloured plastic casing over the top of the card! 8)

    Just make sure you have an external smoothwall or something - the chip is programable - a hackers delight

    Excellent, the perfect addon to round off my PC with its Hardware Physics Accelerator Card and USB Toaster. :P

    Ahhhhhhh, PhysX, hrmmmmm.......

    The game thats being developped with super amazing physics, cell factor, is supposed to only work properly with physics.

    But if you change a line in the config file, you get all the same physics without the card, it just asks more of your hardware.

    I must admit, I do have a USB cup warmer/4port hub. But having USB connections AND a hot cup of coffee are essential!
