    I know that onboard video sucks energy on old cpu like a Intel celeron with 100mhz fsb but do you think that other onboard stuff like sound and LAN are sucking cpu power also? I have my old download rig and i dont use sound, serial port, parallel port and could put in a pci lan card instead of onboard lan.

    What do you think and WHY ? Im asking why because many people around give advices freely like that but are not even able to explain with some technical features. Thx ! :)

    BTW the mobo is ECS P6STMT skt370
    Celeron 1.2gigs
    652mgs pc133
    32megs onboard video

    Thx !
