Default Help me find a good mobo

Can someone help me find a motherboard with a intel NIC built in besides these crappy realtek ones I'm seeing all over :( Thanks. The board will also need atleast two x8 slots.

so far i've found very few

Newegg.ca - ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard


these ones have Intel AND realtek, just for giggles
Newegg.ca - BIOSTAR TPOWER i55 LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.ca - ASUS P8P67 EVO (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

how about marvell ? whos marvell...
Newegg.ca - EVGA P67 SLI 130-SB-E675-KR LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

dual intel
Newegg.ca - ASUS P8P67 WS REVOLUTION LGA 1155 Intel P67 / NVIDIA NF200 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.ca - Intel BOXDX58SO2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.ca - ASUS P6X58-E WS LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

other thing you can do is just buy whatever motherboard you want
and then pick up a separate networking card...

which you can then transfer from computer to computer as you upgrade, buy new
i still have my 10/100 dlink card. i don't think it's ever gonna die. pushing 6 years now

This didn't really matter as I'm willing to go with any cpu for my file server build, chipset doesn't really matter as well to me. I just want a good solid board that is going to last me hopefully 5+ years.

Thanks ROH_Ultima a nice selection you picked out but there a little expensive, did you happen to see anything on the cheaper side? But yeah If worst comes to worst I'll be buying a good cheap mATX board with a intel 1gbps pci network card.

Nothing wrong with realtek onboard. Works just as good as onboard Intel.

Want the best then go dedicated nic.

Alot of problems have been posted about realtek nics on the hardware forums. Also good news I just found out. I can fold with my unraid server :D I think I found one good super micro board but I'm so limited by the ram it can use, I've read out of every motherboard a super micro will be the pickiest out of them all...

Nothing wrong with Realtek chipset based NICs. They work just fine.

Other NICs are better, but doesn't mean Realtek's are outright crap.
