Default 10/100/1000 GBit Ethernet

What do they mean and how would it affect performance of games? I realized my motherboard does not have 1000 GBit Ethernet. How would I benefit from a higher amount?

It means your NIC can transmit and receive at 10, 100, or 1000 Mbits per second. For most people, gigabit is only really used for transferring files rapidly, LOCALLY. Most people do not have WAN links exceeding 100 Mbit so it's a moot point.

Doesn't matter how fast the ethernet on your motherboard is, you're bottleneck for speed is your ISP, aka whatever your internet speed is.
