Hi folks. I need a clarification. I've got an old PC using a A7N8X-X motherboard. I'm getting a new PC shortly that uses a P8P67 EVO (With two gigabit ethernet ports) and want to hook the two up for a few days to transfer things over from one to the other (and perhaps play some classic Unreal Tournament with the wife).
My question is this; Do I need an ethernet crossover or does MDI work when connecting a gigabit port to a non gigabit port, thus I'd just need a standard ethernet cable? I've looked around online a bit and can see that gigabit to gigabit no crossover is needed, but I'm not sure about gigabit to non.
Thanks in advance folks!

If one network adapter is autosensing (I assume what the new motherboard claims) you won't need a crossover cable.
