are those 2 nics going to be bonded into 1 interface?  haveing 2 nics, on
the same network isnt really going to earn you anything unless they are
bonded or loadbalanced, either thru network configuration or switching
hardware.

if youre not going to go thru one of those techniques, then i would remove
one nics.

unless, long shot (tm), as in this has no technical base, just a guess...
have you tried reversing the order in which they appear in the rc.conf
file?  i dont know if that matters, or if it reads the order of their
IRQs, but it might be worth a shot if you really want both of those nics.
