Killer Xeno Pro: Do You Really Need A Gaming Network Card?

Introduction

Gaming on a personal computer is very different from gaming on a console in that a hardcore PC gamer has to spend more money for a premium experience. All of a computer's core components need to be upgraded to deliver high frame rates. The CPU and the graphics card are key, but memory, the motherboard, hard drives, optical drives, and even the monitor are also necessary for buttery-smooth and attractive game play.

I think most of us are tired of spending money unnecessarily, so when a company comes along and says that we're forgetting something and that there's another piece of the PC gaming puzzle that deserves our hard-earned cash, then that company will be expected to prove its claim. If it does, then it has  opened up a whole new market, and gamers will come flooding in to offer up their scratch in exchange for making their gaming rig a little closer to perfection.

Today, we take a long, hard look at a product that is trying to make just that kind of niche for itself: Bigfoot Networks’ Killer Xeno Pro. The stakes are high, because if Bigfoot Networks can't prove that its product is indispensable for hardcore gamers, then it will likely only interest those who have a lot of money to spend on bragging rights.

There's a lot at stake for Bigfoot Networks. Let's start with an overview of the card, its bundle, and its features.
