    When you're running SQL with so many users accessing your harddisk (yeah, yeah... faster HDD... scsi), you need all the ram and CPU you can get.

    Even the integrated network points on most serverboards use up some cpu power... I guess I'm a bit extreme lor.

    Last time the sales promoter told me that Athlon CPU may not compatible with the USB modem and advice me to top up another 40 bucks for the Ethernet modem...

    I think it's bull ****..nevertheless I still bought the Ethernet 1..haha

    Regardless of USB or Ethernet..I think it is not the main issue for connection speed. The bottleneck is on the plan u subscribe and the server u r surfing on.

    rainman,

    yeap... however, there are certain compatiblity issues encountered with VIA based motherboards / non-intel chipset motherboards on USB modems.

    Me using a USB modem (Aztech), bought for S$20 in Yahoo Auction. Almost a year now never had any problem. Installation is just as easy as normal modem. If you're using faster PC the CPU resource used by USB modem is negligible. Using AMD XP 2500 no problem at all, PC never slow down. Why I choose USB, it's so cheap compared to Ethernet ones, no external power supply needed.

    If ISP giving you FOC, get a Ethernet version
