I avoid Realtek for everything myself..

Another option may be
http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/1U/5015/SYS-5015M-MR.cfm

Uses a dual core pentium D, and dual Intel Gigabit NICs, and you
get optional IPMI for remote management as well, similar half
depth chassis.

Only downside is you have to crack open the chassis to swap the disk,
though if you use CF you could have your system builder make you
a system with a CF->SATA adapter in the available I/O slot so
the CF card is easily accessible from the outside of the chassis.

Rackable/SGI products are nicer in that they have better management
and LCD screens on their half depth stuff

But I doubt they want to talk to anyone that wants to order just one.
