Default LAN ports

i'm getting a mobo with dual 10/100/1000 LAN ports. can i connect to the internet through those or will i need a seperate network interface card? also if it does work would the NIC help by taking strain off the mainboard?

Yes (assuming you have a modem/net connection/router/lan set up)

Not really because the m/board still has to power it through the PCI slot.

Use the onboard is my suggestion.
