I don't know for sure about the GS524T, but their smaller gigabit switches 
don't support jumbo frames (large packets, 9000 bytes). This may or not 
be an issue for you.
We have a 4-port netgear gigabit switch and are pretty happy with it. The 
backplane bandwidth is enough that we can send with 2 ports and receive 
with two ports with little effect on performance.
The GA620Ts are also excellent cards, but hard to find now. They went to the 
GA622T which has an entirely different (and inferior) chipset and driver.
