I'm looking for recommendations for NAS Hardware.
I have some spare hard disks and want to use them in a dedicated low
power NAS box that should run NetBSD.

My requirements are basically:
. fits 4x 3,5" SATA disks
. Gigabit LAN
. Low Power (i.e. not a desktop PC)
. available :)

Does an HP Microserver count or does that not fit bullet point 3?

Would that be something like: (140
pounds after cashback).

Yes, exactly that. It also has eSATA and internal USB socket which is nice.

Is anyone on the list running NetBSD on one,

I've a number of them, but watch out for kern/44277.

and also does anyone have a good pci-e network card recommendation?

I use Intel Pro/1000CT (come with both full and half-height backplates - the HP can only take half-height).
