INTEL NIC 82574L chipset 100% working?

Would this NIC be fully recognized (1000 Mb)?

In the list of hardware (which as far as I know is the first place to have a look at before buying) the 82574 chipset is listed, but not the 82574L chipset which is the one present of the above intel card (L might stand for something not important maybe). In the intel pdf spec file FreeBSD is listed as supported since 7.* but I just want to be sure before buying.

Looks silly when plugged into a long X16 PCIE slot, but working fine here.
