Smiler: Some PCs (and some servers) do come with one or more gigabit ports built in. But it's much more common for people to buy the cards separately, as they're not vastly expensive. They're not all that widely used though, as not all switches support gigabit anyway - and 100Mbit, like 640KB, is thought to be "enough".

(I'm using 100Mbit connections for some of the servers I've bought that have gigabit built in, as the ones with less data throughput requirements can't justify using up a gigabit capable port on the switch).
