[c-nsp] GigE cards for 6509

I am guessing it relates, but my experience is with the older GIG/ GBIC
cards.  You could buy 8 port and 16 port versions.  The problem was that
they both had the same amount of ASICs.  As such, your ports will have less
dedicated bandwidth, on the 16 port version.  

Just my cents of knowledge...

We need some more GigE cards for our 6509.  I contacted our supplier
today and was told that a WS-X6316-GE-TX 16 port copper GigE card (which
we already have one of and need another) is MORE money than a
WS-X6148-GE-TX card which has 48 10/100/1000 ports on it.

I'd be crazy not to buy a 6148 card it looks like... is there any
catches that I should know of?  This seems too easy..;)

We use these cards to connect servers but also run some basic QOS
functions and Dot1Q trunking on some interfaces...
