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.

The 3560 Series can also be Layer 3.

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.
