    I do think intel NICs are much better than broadcom if you are using linux OS.

    Upz for you bro.
    Darn, no money

    This will help. But the list is old. I've added some motherboards and systems but they've not shown up so I guess it's not being updated anymore. But it's a good start.

    Ultimate VMWare ESX Whitebox | Hardware: Motherboards

    Now... about the intel or broadcom gigabit nic - anyone?

    Hmmm this ESXI is quite picky on the hardware. Tried to install to IBM Server System X3105 with AMD Opteron Dualcore and always failed.

    So now using Xenserver. So far so good, not so picky anymore.

    ESXi will allow you to double your virtual ram at ESX level, ie, 4GB physical = 8GB virtual.

    ESX has pretty good intelligence when it comes to allocating what the VMs actually need.

    Vmware's product is more mature.

    And my office is using the full blown ESX server, need to bring up another for POC.

    Intel/Broadcom NIC anyone?

    Just curious, can you actually get anything higher than 8 - 11MBs transfer rate with this card? Just changed to a Cat6 cable but don't see the performance improvement at all.

    Connected to Dlink GB switch, to a DNS323 - both CAT6 cabling.

    Hmm.....


    Intel GB NIC anyone?
