You dont say for what kind of machine. I really like using Intel
PRO/1000 MT dual port in servers. If you are doing IPMP only and want
the most redundant setup then you'd go with 2 nics instead of 1 dual

Broadcom gigabit works fine. Really, I haven't found anything from
broadcom, 3com or intel that dont work.

Good old intel pro/100 if you dont need gigabit work really well.
