They're expensive. It's cheaper to get a Cisco 2501 (dual serial
interfaces, ethernet port) + external CSU/DSU than the PCI card for the PC.
Heck, for the price of the PCI card you can get a spare or three!

A Cisco 2501 or 1601R is a common "base line" router. A 2610 or 1720
with a WIC-1DSU-T1 is also fairly common.
It would be a very good idea to get in touch with a broker - talking
with the sales guys can sometimes be educational - they know the
equipment better than you or I - and if you tell them your requirements
they make sure you get the right equipment.
Three such brokers are
* Optimum Data (http://www.optimumdata.com)
* Network Hardware Resale (http://www.networkhardware.com)
* Multi-Link Communications (http://www.mlcp.com)
Be sure to google for more!
Disclaimer: I work for the first and know some the guys at the others.
