I'm looking to eventually upgrade my home network to all gigabit so I'm going to start by purchasing a few NICs for some old servers I just received. I know there are quite a few supported by FreeBSD6 which I found ( http://www.freebsd.org/releases/6.0R/hardware-i386.html#ETHERNET ) but I'm wondering if there is any real benefit in buying a $40 or $50 NIC like the Netgear GA311 or just get a $20 NIC like the D-Link DFE-530TX+. The use will probably be a firewall, proxy, file server, and DVR. <http://www.EagleBit.com/Netgear_GA311_Gigabit_PCI_Card_p/eb-400-00357.htm>

Sorry, poor example with the D-Link. Actually the Trendnet TEG-PCITXR or the Encore ENLGA-1320 (if they are supported)
