I usually buy the Cisco Catalyst 3560-12SD.  You'll need to purchase SFPs for this as well.  Comes with 2 X2 ports that you can use a Twin-Gig Module that will give you an extra two SFP slots per, for a total of 16 Total SFP ports.

Hope that helps.

SFPs are network ports.  You use Fiber SFPs to connect to the switches with Fiber and a Copper SFP (GLC-T is the part number) as a Network Port to the router.
