Hi There... I've been looking at the new Soyo KT333 motherboard, and it has some nice extras like onboard LAN, 6 channel audio, USB 2.0, etc. My question is relating to the extras - will the onboard features affect the performance of the board at all? Take the LAN connection as an example - will there be any difference between using a NIC or the onboard LAN? Will disabling the onboard LAN connector make any difference to the speed of the machine? Similarly with the 6 channel sound connections - if I stick with my current VideoLogic DigiTheatre, am I likely to get better results than with the on-board sound? OK, I realise this is more complex, as I have a decent sound card, but will using on board sound use up more processing cycles than with a dedicated sound card, or do I have nothing to worry about at all? Hope someone can help.
