Unless you are on an OC-192 connection lol which is not the case, the Gigabit card will not help you on the internet... however.. if you have gigabit network set up at home, you will see a large performance increase, when transfering files from one computer to the other, however that will still be limited by cables, system resources, what type of switch you are running, type of cards, speed of systems doing the transfer etc.. however that still will not increase your speed when downloading from the internet, only on your local network.

Oh, then a gigabit card will rule. You will notice so much of a difference.

I think you will have to install them on all the other computers as well though, but yeah that would be ace.

Yes you would need them on all computers using it, also you would need a gigabit switch

Arrizx, Unless you have an OC3 connection or higher speed, a gigabit speed on the NIC cards is useless and no, it won't go faster. I tried myself. Nothing much different, perhaps 1-2 kbps faster, but that's it.
