Network in need of an overhaul? Been holding off on a Gigabit network because your PC(s) don’t have capable Network Interface Cards (NICs)? Avoiding a new NIC because your router or switch isn’t up to speed?
Chicken? Egg? Cart? Horse? Well, today you can get all of your poultry and spaghetti western transportation in order in one fell swoop with help from NewEgg.
The online retailer has the Rosewill RC-410X 10/100/1000 8-port network switch for only $29.99 + $2.99 shipping.
But wait, there’s more. As soon as you add the switch to your cart, you’ll instantly see a Rosewill RC-401 10/100/1000 NIC with PCI-E x1 interface appear in your cart for free! That extra card is ordinarily $30 (on sale now for $20 + $2.99 shipping), so it’s like getting the switch for $10. Boost those file transfers and HD video streams to Gigabit speed and never slow down your wife’s online shoe shopping with your Anime marathons ever again.
Note: Deals subject to change and stock availability from retailer.
