The new server has a 1Gb intel chipset NIC whilst the Core2 (HP Compaq 7700) has an Intel based 1Gb NIC (not sure which right now).
I was leaning a little towards the NIC in the new server being faulty or having 'bad' drivers but, every test I have run seems to be fine.
I will download the latest drivers for the Intel chipset later on and, install them in the morning.
