I suppose you mean Mbps? (Mega bits per second)

For ordinary web browsing, downloads etc is 100 adequate or must I use
up a slot for a faster card?

Unless your internet provider has a service which gives you more than 100
Mb/s you have no use for a 1 Gb/s card while doing web browsing and
downloads from internet.

On the other hand, today it is almost hard to find NICs slower than 1 Gb/s.
