    I'm getting terrible website speeds and also my ping is all over the place spiking in games. I'm not behind a router but I am using my schools network, I've never had this bad of an issue before having this board. Are there any good cheap nic's?

    I haven't noticed any problems with mine.

    Try updating the drivers first.
    If that doesn't help, try a cheap Intel server NIC from Ebay.

    It's likely just the way traffic is on the network though.
    I would fully expect the speeds to be all over the place on a school network.
