What Gigabyte NIC to use for HP RP2470?

I need a gigabyte nic for an HPUX rp2470 but I can't find a suggestion anywhere. Does anyone have a recommendation for this?

Don't forget that in broad handwaving terms, the host overhead to send a packet over GbE is the same as it is for 100BT or 10BT. So, don't expect a 10X increase in over the network performance, unless, _perhaps_ you are at only 10% CPU utilization presently :)
