It appears that an awry cable has damaged both of the Ethernet ports (left most pin) on my $600 motherboard. Furious.

Are there any PCI-express NIC brands that will work well on Ubuntu out of the box? Meaning, without having to mess with drivers etc.?

Canonical have put out a list of certified hardware for Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10 & 11.04

This also includes network cards. Have a look through this list for PCI-Express cards to find one that fits your budget and requirement.
