What networking equipment should we get? Any good recommendations?

We are in the process of moving our office to a new space. At the moment, we are sharing a DSL line with another office in the same building. But we are planning to move into a new building that offers 50 Mbps downstream and 10 Mbps upstream internet service so we need to make sure we have equipment that can handle or optimize speeds like that.
The service provider will be Comcast, and we currently don't own any cable modems, routers, switches, nor firewalls. The setup will be for 20 computers.
What networking equipment should we get? Any good recommendations? Should we get our own modem or rent it from Comcast? Should we go cheap or should we consider high end equipment?
