Well the main difference between the cards is speed. However there can be some reasons for choosing the slower card ie ram and processor considerations, amount of bits/sec you wish to travel over a line, etc. My advice is if you are looking to buy a new ethernet card ask the person you purchase from their advice based on your system type and requirements.

Hope this helps,
