I would agree with nve but not had any problems with bge
here and we put them under quite a bit of load as busy
DB, Web, FTP and Samba servers not to mention metric tone
of game servers.

If you want a specific netcard nothing to stop you putting
in a PCI-X card which is what we do when we want Fibre, you
dont tend to find many MB netcards are fibre :)
