I just read the review about nforce3 250Gb chip. It has 1000mbps ethernet right on the chip, not through a bus. It also has hardware-based firewall...

The ethernet performance really blows. Combined with this ethernet, firewall, and fast I/O performance, maybe nForce will be a good choice for (dedicated) web hosting?
