Pretty basic stuff here but I'm not up on server hardware and am in need of a Gigabit PCI NIC for our Dell PowerEdge 2500 running on Server 2003.  It's for a business so I'd like something reliable provided it doesn't break the bank.

    We use the Intel PRO Server series for our servers and started using the Pro Desktop in our low end servers and desktops.

    Sort of spendy in the server editions but have had no problems with them.

    My .02 cents anyway.
