Connell takes a second attempt to find out the merit of a gaming based network adapter over a standard integrated solution.

Not sure why anybody would even consider buying something like this for on-line gaming. However fast your local network is (and with POE adapters in it, it will never be enormously fast), the internet connection is almost always going to be the bottleneck, especially when it comes to latency. As a user, you have no control how your packets are routed over the internet to the gaming server.
Utilities like traceroute (or better equivalents) can help you see very quickly how many milliseconds it takes to traverse the LAN and parts of the internet.

Nice review, I purchased this card 2 weeks ago and believe it or not, you got further than I did. I tried this card on 2 systems, the first BSOD's constantly when installed and the second had problems realising the card was installed. Have been running through the sellers attempts to get this working and am currently waiting for an RMA as we appear to have exhausted al options now.
