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? <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by kaywhy on 02/17/05 08:12 PM.</EM></FONT></P> More about : simple question neo platinum shawnlizzle =] February 17, 2005 11:20:07 PM there's 2 rj-45 connecters on the neo2, so u'll be fine KayWhy February 17, 2005 11:30:32 PM Ok thx ! is there a driver that i need to install in order to use it ?
