  Cat-5e at a minimum Cat-6 if budget allows. One of the more critical pieces will be the switch. I would recommend HP Procurve. Get a good switch that will let up (on a per port basis) set the connection speed. You can probably get away with your current wiring as long as it is CAT-5 on the shorter runs. If you get a switch like the Procurve and one of the connections can't handle the GB bandwidth you can set the speed to 100 on the switch just for that port. Might save you a ton on cabling costs. Most Procurves also have at leat one mini GBOIC slot which will let you install a internal fiber transiever for the switch to switch longer runs.
