Yes and No

Its not a question of having to many servers but what each server is doing and the bandwidth being used.

I am hoping you use intelligent switches and you can monitor bandwidth through each switch and port.

I would start monitoring bandwidth to see where your issue resides.

How are your severs setup on the netowrk. Do they use Gig switch ports, do you have dual nics being utilized in your servers?
