Remember awhile ago when we heard about the Killer NIC. A forum was made of which we all shot it down, 280 bucks for a NIC? What a joke. I found it on newegg....read the reviews. From what people say it doesn't seem anymore reasonable to buy a 500 dollar graphics card then to buy a 300 dollar NIC. But are these reviews honest? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16833342001

They only really say it's running faster. Well no shit. Doesn't make it worth $280.

$280 for a network card... man, the things people waste their money on these days. Is there really any way to justify the cost of that?

Hmm....lets say this, it is for those people that can afford all the "why nots". Like a PPU and a nice sound card. Where we all can settle for intergrated, the have lots of money, and don't care, they want the best.

Yeah, and nevermind that it comes free on nF5. There is nothing special about that card other than some fancy laser cuttings and a big price tag.

279.99-29.99 (FEAR)=250 Dvd version to...is that worth 39.99? if it is...240. Still not justifiable.... But the nf5 boards pull off the cpu, this has its own processor on it, 400MHz. I still don't think it is justifiable...unless your one of those people.... I WANT A PPU, QUAD SLI, CORE 2 EXTREME, 4 GIGS OF RAM, A TB OF HDD SPACE, FULL WATER COOLING SYSTEM, NICE SOUND CARD, 4 MONITORS, 700WATT 7.1, EVERYTHING!
