I've had nothing but good luck with tulip cards, and all are well
supported.  Personally, I wouldn't switch :)

I've had good experiences with RTL-8139 based cards, but quite a few
people will disagree with me, on debian-user and otherwise :)

3com's 3c905, 3c905b, 3c905c cards work well.  I've heard that Intel's
EtherExpress PRO/100 (the eepro100 driver) work well, too.

The only thing I can think of > $150 US is a 4-port ethernet card :)
