Hi, im looking to get a gigabit ethernet adapter for my minecraft server that is quite big now. It used to run off the motherboard but now since its quite big i thought if i should get a good card. I was wondering if you could help me with one?
It has to be a pci card and compatible with windows 8 *if your not sure ill just ask the people where ill buy it from*
Price range $0-$100
I would like to keep it as a budget as it would be coming from donations :) 

Thanks

As long as the adapter is working properly, I don't see any reason to get a new one. You're most likely going to be limited by the CPU/RAM or your internet connection, and the motherboards now use gigabit adapters so you would be buying something you already have.

ive got 16gb ram 1600mhz and a 3.6ghz cpu also a 60gb sata 3 6gbs to load the files from.
I was also looking because i read that it takes less pressure off the cpu and chipset is that true?

If you get something like a Killer NIC (or the equivalent - these are just well-know) they will have a better processor to handle the information.

I don't know if they work well for uploading information (I'd assume they would), but they do work a little better than regular gigabit ethernet adapters.
