Default ethernet speed help

Not sure if this right forum, maybe network forum,dunno, the speed freaks seem to be here

Have an ethernet hub, will be replacing it with a switch, how much speed will that add assuming current setup can keep up with whatever the network can handle, which is the case now with a hub, even my p100 can flood my LAN with about 835Kbps in or out which is fast as any of my machines seem able to do currently.Besides running multiple ethernet lines in parallel(yes that can be done) is there anything else relatively cheap I can do?

Reason Im asking is Im about to setup another mosix cluster for a render/processing farm Im building,last one I setup worked fine but latency and thruput over the LAN tween machines was causing a bottleneck.

Last question is, what kind of speeds/thruput are you guys seeing over a LAN using an ethernet switch and decent ethernet cards?
