You'll probably find they all work just fine.  Your best bet is to buy 
from Dick Smith Electronics, as they have a no questions asked money 
back guarantee.  Then if it doesn't work, you can get a refund.  Though 
of the three different cards I've bought, they all worked out of the box 
in Ubuntu.

Another option would be to buy from these guys, who specifically mention 
Linux support:
