Should I buy a Network interface card since I am going to get an Asus P5Q motherboard?

I just heard recently that Asus p5q series have a problem with their onboard Network Card. Also since I am still learning about computers I don't know what I should look for when buying a network card. please help.

This is impossible to answer without reference to what the machine does and how it uses its NIC. Many home users only use a network for sharing an internet connection and possibly printing the odd file. For such use a basic NIC will be fine - the usage is so light (even heavy internet use) that the performance of the card is not an issue.

If on the other hand the machine is a network server or even a workstation that depends heavily on the network (for instance it is heavily dependent on networked file systems) then a better NIC may be a sound choice.

There is nothing fundamentally wrong with the Atheros AR8121 but it lacks full DMA capability - this means that the processor has to manually copy data in and out of the card rather than simply telling the card to get on with it. A fast computer should still be able to run the interface at full speed but it will use more CPU time than strictly needed in order to do this.
