Depends on how much you need the bandwidth and how much cash u have!

Using something like the Intel Pro/100+ cards and a Cisco 2924XL switch, you can use Cisco's Etherchannel solution. This would allow data to be sent via either card, thereby doubling throughput. However, you need both switches and network cards which support Etherchannel or a similar protocol.

I believe you can have up to four channels bonded to give a total throughput of 800Mbps (full duplex) on Fast ethernet and 8Gbps on Gigabit ethernet.

So, for the home user.... If u got the cash!
