No rebates!

Basically, a free 5770 with purchase of killer nic

Alternitively you could say; free killer nic with purchase of 5770.

Either way, it is a great deal.

I've never use one but there's been alot of review's of the standalone Killer NIC cards:

http://www.tomsguide.com/us/killer-m...view-1083.html
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/B.../KillerNIC_M1/
http://www.anandtech.com/show/2111
http://gear.ign.com/articles/729/729557p1.html
http://hardware.gotfrag.com/portal/story/34683/

but almost all of them have the same conclusion- Pings and Framerates are a little better but still tough to justify the cost. However since your basically getting it for free- or ~$15 (if you compare it against cheaper 5770's) this does seem like a decent deal if you are in the market for a 5770.

Buy.com also has this for the same price, but shipping is a few dollars more.

Badass card, I was considering one of these a while back but they were too expensive at the time.

network traffic priotization is the main reason to use the K2100. You get to bypass the windows networking stack completely, so pretty much all network transfers are more efficent.

No, it will not help your FPS, no, your ping will not be dramatically different, but your network useage will be much smoother, and better controlled.

The reason why all the reviews show minor FPS increases is because it reduces load on the CPU. I think these gains are more evident on a single core system, and not so much on a modern quad+/core cpu.

If you are a power user, the NIC will be worth it. Just gaming? Probably not.
