    I think using LAN cards would be better.You get LAN cards very cheap nowadays.
    Also the speed would be quite good with LAN cards.

    You can play multiplayer games without a hitch with LAN.
    To play games you will need LAN cards only to connect the 2 PCs so that you can play without a lag.

    if you simply want to connect two PCs
    then better connet them through serial port ..
    no need to buy a LAN card
    all you need is a LAN cord specifically made to connect 2 PCs
    ( there is slight difference in alignment to 8 wires in the LAN cord made for connect you to hub and one made to directly connect two PCs )
    just ask the vendor to give a lancord for connecting 2 PCs .. he'll understand[/b]
