    Are there any regular desktop network cards that will work with Esx server 3?

    refer to the following link to see what NICs and drivers are supported by ESX 3.x

    those are your options.

      I purchased this adapter, would it likely work?

      Intel PWLA8391GT 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter


      Does it have to match exactly to what's on the compatiblilty guide?

        i dont know. did you look at the guide i gave you?

        if you take a look at it, you could probably answer your own question...

        or if you dont like reading, just try to install it and see if it fails. if it does, then that card is likely not supported.

          The card might not but the chipset needs to.

          Buy first, check later, isn't the most efficient way.
