For copper gigE I've never had a problem with the Intel Pro-1000 series 
of cards. They just work.

For gigE cards with optical connects I've had success with both Intel 
Pro-1000 and SysKonnect.

You should pay careful attention to what your cluster hardware vendor 
recommends (if they have an opinion) . They may have news or 
recommendations to report that are specific to your brand of 
motherboard, PCI slot etc.
