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?

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

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.
