I don't think there are very many options, so that card will work. ALL the Intel Pro cards are very nice, IMHO

We have experianced very poor performance (5.4Gbps w/jumbo frames) out of Intel 10GbE cards in the past. I would suggest Myricom's 10G-PCIE-8A-S+E or Chelsio's N310E which are close to wire speeds (~9.5GBps).
