I just thought I would update this a bit. I found a cheaper
GigE switch from Pricegrabber. The Hawking HGS8T
has 8 auto-sensing GigE capable ports

The best price is $174.11 without shipping. So, using the
Intel NICS ($39 a card) and this switch, the total for 8
ports is, $486.11. So, the price per port is down to $60.76
a port.
