THE SPEED I'M GETTING FROM MY ISP IS AROUND 100MB AND I DO NOT HAVE A USAGE LIMIT.

Unless you need a second port or are trying to impress your friends, why not use the onboard Intel Ethernet adapter?

I use them on all of my machines that only need one connection and I consistently get right at the theoretic transfer rates for gigabit Ethernet when going SSD to SSD OS'ed machines.

I need the one with the best performance even if it's just by a whisker.
money is not an issue.
so could you tell me which is best

The Bigfoot makes the most sense. They are fast, see here: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/bigfoot_killer_...

The Intel would give you two or four ports, great for VMs but no more speed.

The QLogic is a fiber channel adapter and would not work with CAT 5e/6 and just makes no sense for a home user.

And also, why the cheap SATA RAID controller? An Adaptec 6405 or 6805 would be far superior and I've used a number of them on ASUS X68 and X79 boards.

I always trusted Intel/Broadcom/USR, any 100mb NIC will satisfy the speed you need. As far as cost per performance as PCI-e 1x, 4x, 8x you might see it in reaction time on heavy gaming but otherwise insignificant. You might be suffering more from the nVidia Low 3D gaming performance vs. AMD. Why buy such good components but crappy video cards ?
