Which NIC should I buy for Oracle Linux Server 6.4

Hi,

 

I am trying to install Oracle RAC 11g R2 onto my laptop PC - Lenovo T400s. I have installed Oracle Linux Server 6.4. The OOTB NIC was recognized by OS and eth0 is fine but I need one more NIC for RAC. RAC needs two NIC for public IP and private IP. Now I want to buy NIC for either USB or express card for the second NIC but I don't know which one to buy. Most of NICs that I find on the Internet is supported by Windows or Mac but I could not find any that says it is supported by Linux. Could someone tell me which one I should buy so  I can download driver from the company website and compile from source hopefully..

 

Thanks,
