    If you want dirt cheap then I'd stick with Intel but just go for a basic Pro-1000 desktop NIC rather than one of the "proper" server ones. Will still be totally solid and reliable it'll just be missing some of the management features.

    Low end 3Com Gigabit?

    Although I'd go for something like a 3C905-TX-M for a decent card (it's 10/100 though).
