Ethernet card to passthrough for firewalling/QOS

Hi!

 

I am looking for an ethernet adapter to passthrough to a VM (pfsense/untangle/sophos/...) in order to use as a firewall or UTM and apply some QOS.

 

I need at least 2-ports and I can't think why i might need 4 in the future.

I use a modem in bridge mode and a mikrotik for firewall/nat/pppoe-client right now which I will create a route to the VM to use it if it's online and skip it if for some reason the VM is not online.

 

So any recommendations on which ethernet card to look for?

For example is this enough or should I look for something more advanced-expensive!

Thank you!
