10/100/1000 Ethernet hardware recommendation

I'm about to build a Gigabit backend network for a few machines. This 
network will provide file and database services to a dedicated set of 
web application servers. My experience with Gigabit Ethernet leads me to 
like the Intel Pro/1000 cards which I believe use the em(4) driver in 
FreeBSD. Is this an appropriate NIC for a server or is there something 

Thanks in advance
