You could always opt to get a USB nic. I picked one up for $10.

Going to be hard to get gig speeds off a usb nic ;) Would not be my first choice. Think I'll spend the few extra bucks.

I know you didn't but why would you run anything but? ;) I would never in a million years bring up anything 100 these days. Moving anything over that speed network is like watching paint dry.

When internet speeds reach above 100Mb/s as the norm is when I will change.

sure if all your doing is internet its not that big of issue. But what about lan device to lan device, or pulling a file off one of my Vms - if at 100 its like watching paint dry to move a 700MB iso.
