Has anyone benchmarked, tested, compared, or used both
ethernet ports on the A7N8X Deluxe? I'm using the 3Com
at the moment and it works just fine but I'm curious
about the Nvidia. Does either one have advantages or
disadvantages? Does any particular one use more or less
CPU? Am I better off using a PCI card?

The onboard network is just as good as a pci. I don't really think it using the nvidia one right now, just cause i didn't have to install the drivers for the 3com. The nvidia one is working fine for me.

supposedly the nvidia nic uses less overhead when used in conjunction with the rest of the devices on the pci bus, but the difference is negligable.

I guess I'll just have to experiment.
