Thanks. Looks good.

I just looked around - looks like manufacturers tend not to list the
chipset in their NIC specifications (like here, for instance:
http://www.trendnet.com/products/proddetail.asp?prod=140_TEG-PCITXR&cat=14
)

Is there a list somewhere out there listing what card features what chipset?

It definitely looks like it is best to just stick to the better
chipsets - might be a little more expensive but definitely worth the
money.

Thanks.

Boris.

I *think* most of our servers have Broadcoms.

You get what you pay for -- this is a valid rule of thumb throughout the
whole life.
