Types of Network Cards= $45-$150
10/100 Ethernet= 10/100 Ethernet cards are networking cards that are used most frequently in the home or small office setting. As the name suggests, they are capable of speeds up to 10 or 100 megabits per second.
Gigabit Ethernet= Gigabit Ethernet NICs provide network transfer speeds of up to one Gigabit per second. These cards connect to the computer using the same means as previously mentioned, however, they are much more likely to be produced for PCIe slots.
Fiber Optics= Major network infrastructures such as tier 1 and 2 Internet backbones require much more powerful NICs. Fiber optic NICs use fiber optic cabling to reach speeds of 10 gigabits per second currently, with a specification under review to push this limit to 100 gigabits per second.
