If you are going to use fiber for a high speed lan, I would suggest going Gigabit. I am not sure about your budget, but if there are no constraints you might as well go with a Cisco Catalyst 6500 (or 2 of them for redundancy). I can go into more specifics, but you'd also have to be more specific on what you want.

Hope that helps, good luck.
