I also want a cheap PCI/e NIC that works well with drivers back to FreeBSD-4 like my plain PCI bge and em NICs do. I doubt that any popular motherboard will have anything better than a cheap PCI/e NIC.
Finding a modern main board of which the builtin NIC works with 4.X seems like a tall order to me, perhaps it would be easier to install a seperate NIC. With some luck you might be able to pick up a decent used NIC from a discarded Pentium(2) or something. I've been using a 3Com 3c509 combo card for years. In 3.X the driver was still buggy, but it worked great with 4.X, particularly the later ones, say, 4.5 onwards.
