Even $30 1000baseT NIC cards have interrupt deferral. And yes, there
are $30 1000baseT cards that work quite well -- nothing keeps you from
running them at 100baseTX, of course.
There are indeed 4-port gigabit cards. We used one in my last project
at ReefEdge -- it'd just come on the market then and was kinda pricy
but I bet it's dropped. At the time, Intel made the only one.
