    Tom's Hardware: Bigfoot's Killer NIC

    "The Killer NIC is a specially designed NIC targeted specifically at the hard-core gamer. A lot of people dismiss the Killer NIC as ‘bogus’ because they think that its main focus is to ‘lower your ping’. Technically, that is just one aspect of the card.

    As we all know, we have no control over what happens between our personal computers and the servers on the Internet that we access to inflict damage upon our fellow friends and gamers. What we do have control over is the resources within our operating systems. This is where the Killer NIC is claimed to shine brightly, using its ability to bypass the Windows IP stack and directly handle & process all User Datagram Protocol (UDP) packets. UDP is the foundation for communication in multi-player gaming online and on Local Area Networks (LAN)."

    And also about 100-150 dollars (prolly 75-100 quid)

    Could argue that the benefits are worth it but WHO HERE uses the Killer NIC? :scratch:
