Gigabit network card


I am looking for a gigabit network card for my centos 5.4 server. I am looking for something known to work well with linux. I have been on the bestbuy site and I found a DLink (DGE-530T) card with support for linux from the vendor but after reading feedback from users with that card I am not so sure it is linux friendly. I am now thinking of buying online. Any suggestions?

Intel NICs are very well supported on both linux and bsd. I usually try to stay away from realtek NICs - If your after speed realtek is not your friend.

If you can try to get an Intel one, you will not be disappointed.

That's just my , any card on the redhat hardware list will do fine.
