Default Difference between cheap and expensive Gigabit network cards.

Hi folks. I am looking at buying a gigabit network card - but I see a variance in price from $30 - $130. Outside of 32 bit and 64 bit cards, I don't see what other difference there is - although I'm sure theres a logic to it.

Can anyone advise what the difference is?

Have a linux based server used for a business related app that involves multiple connections for real time data provision - although the data stream per connection is miniscule.
A 500mbps synchronous broadband connection is hooked up - and we want to make the best utilisation of this.
