Thanks for the responses. I ended up getting a bge card (NetGear) which
has been performing without any errors through several backup cycles
now.

I chose that one over the Intel simply because I could get it from the
same online as the switch I was purchasing, whereas the Intel card
would've required me to go to a different vender (and end up paying for
separate shipping).
