Was wondering whether to use Round Robin, or Load Balance for two gigabit nics for a web server. Somewhere i read that TCP connections suffer somewhat on Round Robin. Am I better off going with a Load Balance set up?

Round Robin is in my understanding a type of Load Balancing setup. It really depends on the purpose for the dual network cards, are you going for performance or are you going for reliability?
