One note on Gigabit. Cheaper gigabit may = huge processor usage. I've
used Linksys gigabit cards before (I think they were linksys...) that
were dirt cheap. Sure, they push the data fairly well, but processor
usage when moving a file was 80%+ on BOTH systems, just to do a file
copy operation in Windows. I have zero Linux experience with gigabit.
