I just pulled a Sawtooth with an upgrade card out of retirement, but since its retirement we upgraded to Gigabit ethernet. Does anyone know of a readily available 64-Bit Gigabit card that is Mac compatible?
I tried a couple of Intel chipset based cards but they were either unseen or produced the gray shroud of death.
There is no point using a 32-Bit Gigabit PCI Gigabit card in any computer.

EDIT: Sorry, missed the 64 Bit part of the question. I would think a Broadcom chipset would have a better chance of being compatible.

Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately I don't think the computer in question is worth $200USD so I am looking for something of a more generic nature. I will try finding a Broadcom based card like you suggest.
