    Best 10/100 PCI NIC money can buy!
    By iamsostupid March 18, 2001, 06:27 PM

    I had a 3Com 3CR990-TX-97 with the 3XP processor thingy that I broke, and I want to try something new. What is the absolute best 10/100Mbps, PCI (one port RJ45) NIC money can buy?

    thanks guys

    I swear by 3COM.

    By iamsostupid March 18, 2001, 07:15 PM

    dude, i'm at 155FSB. No way in hell 3Com will go above 34MHz PCI

    By rcustomrods March 19, 2001, 02:19 AM

    you gotta get 3com

    By slick March 19, 2001, 04:02 AM

    I like intel

    Personally I like Intel or Netgear the best. 3Com always gives me some sort of problem, no matter what.

    3Com pratically invented TCP/IP, I've been networking for clients for a long time and never had a problem getting a 3Com card to work. I bought a batch of Intel NIC's once and five of them had the same MAC address which isn't supposed to happen. Look in to the 905B, if it can't handle your FSB then I don't know what will.

    I have a Linksys running on a 41 MHz PCI bus, no problems. Maybe I'll lower my FSB a little to be on the safe side.

    By BlueNorther March 19, 2001, 09:02 PM

    I've run my Linksys LNE100tx at 33, 37.5, 41.5, and 45 mhz without a problem.

    what about the 3C905C-TX? wouldnt the newer model be better?

    I love the Netgear FA310s but you might have trouble finding them (also I dont oc so I cant swear how fast theyll go - they seem to be good stable cards though) failing that I like Linksys for good cheap (relatively) cards. 3Com and Intel are both good but only if you steal the cards (I cant see buying one card for the price of 3 good cards just for the name).
