hey guys! I'm upgrading to X99 for my main build and I want to use the i5 4690k I have for a pfSense box. Keeping spending to a minimum, I want to keep the mobo I have at the moment (Asrock z97 E-ITX). which unfortunately only has one GbE.
Since I'll need two ethernet ports for the box, I need to grab a Intel NIC and plug it in the pcie slot. Any suggestions regarding:
- pcie Intel NIC, as small as possible, minimum one ethernet port, won't be a problem if it has more than 1. looking to find the cheapest. which one should I get?
- a itx case with space for the pcie card but as small as possible. any case suggestions?
I have the low profile Noctua, which will take care of any cooling demand.
