I hear you there.  I haven't done any testing with my dual gig setups to
see what if any benefit I am receiving over a single nic.  I just like
to overkill.  So theory is that this should at least eliminate the
possiblity that my nics are a bottleneck.  Then I know HD, RAM, MB and
such are the next likely culprits.

I would be interested in any data others have gathered to determine what
is sever overkill and what is actually beneficial.
