Simple question about Neo Platinum

Hi i'm planning to get a new computer in March.

I'm just wondering is the network card already built in on MSI K8N Neo Platinum nVidia nForce3, so I don't need to buy one ?

I assume that when I get the mobo, they will also give me a driver CD for the mobo and then i need to install it?

  1. there's 2 rj-45 connecters on the neo2, so u'll be fine
  2. Ok thx !

    is there a driver that i need to install in order to use it ?
  3. i don't think so cuz it's part of the nforce3 chipset =\, but if there is, it should be part of the neo2 bundle, so all in all, no extra hardware/software to buy
  4. thx a lot, now i don't have to worry hehe
  5. As was said, yes there are two and they are both gigabit ethernet even. Drivers are supplied on motherboards chipset driver disc.

  6. Make sure the driver loads initially. If it doesn't work right, load it from control panel using the "search for driver" feature with your CD drive selected.
