GbE NICs besides em (recommendation wanted)

I'm quiet disappointed with the em nics and wanted to try some other 
GigaBit NICs (1000baseTX only).
AFAIK there are re, sk, bge driven cards. Which doesn't saturate a PIII at 800 
at 200mbit/s with interrupt load (like em does)?
I heard that the re is way better than the not so well rl and although much 
cheaper than em more efficient.
What about bge? Or sk? Any comments welcome, also if I missed a supported 
family (TX only)
