I have two gigabit Intel NICs, CT Desktop and Pro1000 PT Quad. What is better in meaning better speed, reducing CPU load etc? Or maybe I should sell both and buy new Intel i210-T1?

Hi zzwave, CT, Pro1000 PT and Pro1000 PT Quad have the same gigabit speed and capabilities to offload CPU from packet processing (checksum, segmentation). you may refer to the link below for short comparison of the 3 NICs you've mentioned:

hope the above information helps.
