    X520 is a solid chip. Hard to go wrong with Intel NICs in general.

    Yes, for low end hosting pretty much any intel NIC is good enough. In my dev lab I use Mellanox NICs and if I were really dead serious about total performance as well as some nifty features I'd get adapters from Chelsio (well noted, this is a dev and one in the IT security field speaking. For most people Mellanoxen are just as fine).

    Thanks no.

    Are you saying something like this good?

    No, that's a 2nd generation card (while the current gen. is 5 and 6). But Connect-X 3 and 4 cards are fine and not too expensive e.g. on ebay.
