    From experience I can tell you not to buy anything with a Killer NIC the support is awful. I have a pointless card here whose so called windows 8 drivers is just a rebadged win 7 driver that didn't work properly in the first place avoid the killer NIC at all costs!!

    So, another software based crap NIC....passed off as more than it really is....with typical Atheros support.... Sounds like those that fall for this marketing gimmick are getting screwed over more than usual... I'll stick to my Intel and Broadcom NICs.....

    They should rather integrate a sick ass Intel server grade NIC. This killer nick is just crap. I only buy MSI cause that is the only ones I can get but they work wonders for me. enough features for my needs. don't judge MSI by 1 motherboard.

    I agree we Daffy, I bought a Killer NIC years ago!! Worst product ever!! I remember trying very hard to get the thing working but to no prevail!! Support for the product was worse than Creative...with so many owners of the product screaming for help on the forums only to give up and abandon the product. Left a very bad taste in my mouth!! It was so bad I buried in the backyard hoping that it will never be unearthed ever again!!

    What I hated most was the absolute lies that the company tried to hype up in order to sell the damn things...once bitten twice as shy...

    and if they are going to be working with MSI motherboards well theres other mobo companies out there!!

    Well, if one wants some networking improvements, just buy/install/configure cFosSpeed.
