one thing to think about when buying a switch is to determine if you need
a managed switch or not.  if i have the money i always choose to buy a
managed switch as they are SO helpful when trying to debug network errors.
debugging a slowly dying nic card is so easy with a managed switch.  my
favorite, high-end GigE switch is the Nortel BayStack 5510 which comes in
24 and 48 port densities and can 'stack' to 384 ports.  if you don't have
a lot of cash but want a managed switch look at the 1U ProCurve options
from HP.
