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
Unless the server's in a datacenter I wouldn't worry about it too much as you'll still be restricted by your ISP's upload speed, which usually is not very good.
But, if you're adamant you want a another card for the sake of it, I would look at the Intel desktop cards. These are basically cutdown versions of the server cards. Some motherboards have intel adapters onboard so I would check what you have first.
