Hi, we're looking to add a gigabit NIC to a couple PowerEdge 4400s.
We'll be ordering from Dell, and I want to stick with either Intel or
Broadcom. There's a great deal on Broadcom cards (hmmm, I wonder why?),
but I'm leaning more towards Intel. Anyone have any advice regarding
these contenders?

Intel Pro/1000 MT
Intel PRO/1000 XT 
Broadcom NetXtreme10/100/1000

Thanks!
