Network Adapters.

I recently upgraded to a 25mbps download speed internet package (2mbps upload). I want to know if there are benefits in getting a stand alone network card, or is my on-board network adapter good enough. is there a difference? would I see a difference if i did get a stand alone adapter (if it is better to get a stand alone). what specs should I look for when choosing one? Thanks in advance.

p.s my system specs are in my profile if you need them.

    [#0005ff]Your onboard NIC is capable of the same speeds as a lot of PCI cards and that capability still exceeds the speed of your new Internet connection.[/#000ff]
