how could i set up these two killer nic cards on my pc to run together as one connection and share processing of data (kinda like we crossfire ATI cards). (overall goal to lower my ms raise FPS during online game play)

Simple answer is you cannot do that.

Your network interface card isn't you bottle neck, it's is your Internet link itself. A network interface card is capable of handling anything the Internet can throw at it with plenty of room to spare.

Splitting data between an internal bus is one thing. Splitting data over an internet link is something else altogether.

You can do adapter teaming but this requires a managed switch that supports it.

You would see no improvement concerning your online gaming.

With said switch you would see improvement in lan gaming but the cost of the switch usually defeats that.

Thanks for the tips currently im running 70-90 ms on world of warcraft, using a Killer Nic M1, a linksys router (54g w/ speed boost) and a standard comcast cable modem. account is 6mb, would you think upgrading my modem and router would be a good idea the router was made in 2003 :) was thinking of getting

MOTOROLA SB6120 Up to 160 Mbps Downstream, up to 120 Mbps Upstream Broadscape DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem - Retail
Model #:SB6120

&

D-Link DGL-4500 IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11a/b/g, IEEE802.11n Draft Xtreme N Gaming Router - Retail

keep in mind i have 4 ethernet pc hooked up at home and wireless laptops from time to time. would that improve my network speeds, atm when someone downloads my ms jumps from 70-90 ms to 190-220 ms.

It is your 6Mbs second Internet speed that is the bottle neck. You could have the fastest router in the world 1000 Mbs even, but it wont make the slightest different if you are only throwing 6Mbs at it.
