I am looking at turning one of my PC's into a NAS, and I was wondering, I have a Gigabyte EP45-DS4P whch has 2x Gig-E ports, I was wondering, is there any way to get these to act as the same post, so I can essentially have 2Gigabits/sec? TYIA!

It is possible, though you'd need the cabling to support that kind of traffic and you'd need a 2GB/sec pair of port on each end.

Why?

I dunno, I am in that stage where I want MOAR!!! I am sure that regular Gig-E would be fine enough, just wondering... ;-)

Yeah .. I'm sure you're not even close to saturating a gigabit connection.

OTOH, bigger better faster more. ;)

You CAN do it ... but you won't see a performance benefit. You would probably learn from it, though, and you'd have the fastest pair of connected PCs in the area.

Bear in mind that this would only be a point-to-point network ... you'd connect two PCs with a pair of GigE cables. Unless you have a router or switch capable of 2GB/sec? ;)
