That doesn't make any sense.  A full duplex connection (which should work with any switch) will send and receive data at the maximum speeds.  In other words, a full duplex connection can SEND data at 1 Gbit at the same time it's RECEIVING data at 1 Gbit, giving you essentially a 2 Gbit throughput.

You might be limited by the system bus, but using a second NIC isn't going to solve that.
