    There shouldn't be a difference but the PCIe NIC might be better because its the latest thing out but the difference wouldn't be noticeable, if your looking for something fancy you could take a look at there NICs are mainly for gaming but they are still interesting because the off load all the Network processing to the card instead of the CPU doing it, also they have a built in firewall so again instead of your CPU being bogged down buy a software firewall it is all taken care of on the NIC card.
  2. It is not going to be the bus interface that affects speed but whether the Nic is 10/100/1000 MB
