Good Realtek-Based Gigabit NIC?

Been browsing some shops and I'm having trouble locating a good Realtek-Based 10/100/1000 NIC. My old favorite was the D-Link DFE-530TX+ using the Realtek 8139 chipset, but I'm now looking to speed up transferring files across my home network.

I primarily use Slackware, though might delve into some FreeBSD eventually. Can anyone suggest a good card that won't drain the budget?
