You are correct, use the faster card on the internal network. Your ISP will be the bottleneck on the external network

My recommendation is to buy a good PCIe network card for the internal network. My core (still running as a core/hybrid for now) forgoes using its sole PCIe slot for anything other device (video), and instead uses it for an Intel PCIe network card.

Good but not necessarily "great," by the way... a $30 card should be more than fine.

See my User page on the LinuxMCE Wiki for a description of my system configuration (click the little globe under my profile pic).
