If you need 64bit PCI:

http://www.dlink.com/products/gigabit/dge550t/

These all use the Natsemi DP83820 chipset.

If you need 32bit PCI, then you can try these:

I recall someone saying they were able to get near full wire speed on
linux using the DP83820 and recent kernels.

You should be able to pick one up for under a hundred bucks:
