Here's a shout out on the SUOER cheap-o side of the spectrum,
I found these gigabit cards for $13, Here's where I found them:
Encore 32-Bit Gigabit Ethernet PCI Adpater Card
Pricewatch may have more options...
It's a RealTek chipset, I believe- FreeBSD 5.x current supports it I
know personally, and OpenBSD natively supports it with the current
distro, (not 3.5).
Not sure if you want a quality card or just a quick replacement- but if
you want it fast, I happen to have an extra card and you could pick it
up from me on your way home if you wanted to try one out...
