    NIC/LAN Feedback

    Forgot about this one!
    I always loved Dual NIC/LAN boards, and teaming is a nice feature, but i cant actually think of a useful way to use LAN teaming at all, and thinking about it the only time i used both NICs was when i had a lan party and didnt want to share the dsl line via the router/switch :P hehehe
    but i still kinda want 2... even tho i dont use them, dont ask me why, you just never know what it might be good for

    Now that almost all dsl modems have a switch or router integrated, i wonder how many of you really use 2 NICs and want them.

    Occasionally using two, however I would NOT buy a enthusiast grade motherboard with only 1 NIC.
    But I'd say yes in a "normal, se, deluxe" modeling theme, for example:

    BloodRage GTR ( Fully fledged version, full extra package, 2 NICs, WiFi, e-SATA, waterblock & dry ice pot, etc )
    BloodRage GTI ( Near fully fledged, missing the SAS, the WiFi and the waterblock & dry ice pot, still having 2 NICs )
    BloodRage GT ( 1 NIC only, no WiFi, no SAS, no waterblock, no dry ice pot, no e-SATA )
    Coding 24/7... Limited forums/PMs time.

    thanks for the feedback so far, and yeah bill, i was thinking the same, but foxconn wants to keep the SKUs small... they count every variation of a board as a new project and they limit the number of projects since we arent going through great times exactly atm
    so its hard to decide what to add in the top end and in the mainstream version of the board...

    but we will have several boards soon which should offer a very nice and smooth product lineup.

    BR GTi

    FB GTi
    and then P55 is coming too
    and i hope i can push them to make a BR-X board
