I have a gigabyte GA-7VT600 mobo and i want to share my broadband connection with an older pc.I have read the links on networking 2 pcs and understand i need 2 ethernet cards.My question is as my main pc has onboard lan do i only need 1 ethernet card and a cable to do this?

yes, but if you are directly connecting just 2 computers, make sure it is a crossover cable and not a patch lead.
