i upgraded the nForce drivers to version 4.27 off the nVidia site.
these are newer than what is showing on the gigabyte site for my mobo.
i did not install the nForce update drivers for the Ethernet card b/c
my mobo says the card is the RealTek Gigabit ethernet card and i have
the drivers for that card installed. does the nForce "ethernet"
drivers update and use the RealTek drivers or something else that will
degrade my performance?

The NForce drivers are quite intelligent and will only upgrade the hardware
that they detect. In your case they will neither upgrade or alter the
performance of your installed RealTek Ethernet drivers.
