Other question !

My mobo, Asus Maximus has 2 ethernet lan connection.

So correct me if I am wrong, but it seems I could just put a lan cable from my second lan connection to the second computer ? This way, my two computers would be link togheter and I could use VNC to access the secong computer desktop (it will have no screen plugged in).

My only concern is that I will be letting this second computer crunching with boinc, and I need it to have access to internet to send the completed task. But it will never be directly plugged to my modem cable.

So Am I better off with a network switch or this could work ?

Sold hardware again.....
