I was wondering if anyone has seen any NICs yet for the new ACR expansion slot. If you have, tell me where you saw it.

havent seen any, but for the love of god dont get one!! they are worse than winmodems. they rely on the cpu, just to transfer at 100 mbits it takes 25% cpu time.

how do you shoot the devil in the back? what happens if you miss? -verbal

They are not any cheaper than the cheapest nic and like jihiggs said they utilize the cpu so they suck. Just get a pci nic.

Haven't seen them yet but i'm assuming thier like a modem riser slot or whatever it's called? Since you can get a NIC for 10$ or less I don't see any reason to get something like that.
