Cisco GB Uplink Usage

I have three Cisco 2960 switches; one 2960G 24 port gigabit(20+4) switch and two 2960 48 port 10/100 w/two GB uplink ports. My thought for setting these up was to connect my servers to the 2960G switch and also uplink to each of the 2960 48 port switches into the the 1st GB uplink port. Can I also use the 2nd uplink ports on the 48 port switches to connect the two 2960's? Will this help or hinder performance? Add some redundancy?

I have 5 servers and approx 60 users/devices to connect.

Sure you could. Set up the links as etherchannel, and if you lost an uplink the other one will keep going.
