I always found Realtek cards okay because they would work
everywhere, nearly every OS supported them. But especially
the RTL8139, if I remember correctly, was so busy generating
IRQs that it didn't find the time to have a good performance. :-)
Maybe Realteks newer models perform better.

I'm quite happy with 3Com's and Intel's NICs, I usually give
away Realtek NICs along with computer systems I built for
