Hey....i have onboard lan on my new gigabyte mobo..im always downloading and sendning files via dsl that goes through the nic card.....and trying to play a game at the same time...

this lags the games when i do it.....if i bought a pci nic card would it not go through the processor and not lag the computer so much?

-thanks

I don't really think so, as long as your talking lag as in high ping, it could be a seperate computer all together and I would still lag you good. With my cable modem if I try to play online and download at the same time its not really a problem as long as there is some bandwidth left but uploading kills it.

Basically no file sharing while playing online games!
