most look similar (well, msi is cheaper)
but the different is. gigabyte using Killer E2201 LAN chipset and msi using E2205
is that means, e2205 is better then e2201? (larger is better rule?)

normaly, the first two number of killer lan, mean the series type (like both r the killer E2200 series)
and the following two number means the generation of it, like 2205 is the newest generation of E2200 series
2201 should be the previous one though.

It doesn't really matter, both are just voodoo witchcraft that don't really make any difference in real world use.
