    Best/Cheapest place to buy an universal ethernet card for PC

    Hi does anyone know a good place where they have ethernet cards for a desktop PC im not sure what kind i need so help would be appriciated. Im on a virgin media line which is 10MB my pc does not have an ethernet port on it only has usb ports.
    I have been told that if i connect it via usb i will get lower speeds and its best to use ethernet to get maximum speed.

    So where can i get one from which is good and cheap???

    Thanx

    It doesn't need to be anything fancy, I presume you have free PCI card slots in your PC?

    Yeah i have got 4 slots free. I dont want anything fancy i just want a cheap one which will do the job but where from???

    Ebuyer have a couple of cheap Tenda cards (they're actually Realtek chips, much the same as onboard network cards) which should do the job fine.

    Anyone?

    Patience is a virtue...

    From the picture it looks like a Realtek network chip which I'm sure would work fine but as the auction is lacking any detail about the card I couldn't say for sure.
