I'm looking for low-cost Gigabit network cards.
From currently available models, it seems the following are
low-cost and supported:

Belkin Gigabit Desktop	sk(4)
D-Link DGE-528T		re(4)
D-Link DGE-530T		sk(4)
D-Link DGE-550T		stge(4)
Linksys EG1032v2	sk(4)
	[How do I recognize v2 before buying?]
Netgear GA311		re(4)
SMC 9452TX		gsip(4)
ZyXEL GN-650T		vge(4)

Which one of these would you recommend and why?

Some other low-cost models that I didn't find in man pages are:
3Com Gigabit (3C2000-T)				sk?
Allied Telesyn AT-2916T
Digitus DN-1011		(some RealTek chipset)	re?
Intel PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter (PWLA8391GT)	wm?
Intel PRO/1000 PT Desktop Adapter (EXPI9300PT)	wm?
Surecom EP-320G-SC				gsip?
Surecom EP-320G-TX				gsip?
Surecom EP-320G-TX1				gsip?
US Robotics Gigabit Ethernet Card

Are any of these supported too, or could be easily supported,
and would be preferable?
