Default Mobo/Briding Question

Hey all, as of now I plan on getting this mobo for my build im planning:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188024

my question is, if it has 2 built in Ethernet ports do i need a networking card to bridge a connection to my xbox? see i live in a little guest house above someones garage, and i get their internet from the house, and i use my machine as a bridge to my xbox 360 for a steady connection. my question is will i get poor performance through these built in Ethernet ports? or do i need to get a NIC for better performance?

thanks for the help!

from no personal experience at all i would say you will be fine.

the only slight issue you might have is im guessing the xbox will take a fair bit of bandwidth which may slow your comp down but should be fine otherwise i mean lest face if 108Mbps LAN connection and your net is going to be max lik 8MB
