Maybe true for servers but in this case the OP is receiving
the streaming video...
What backwards way of thinking are you pulling this out of where you sit? Actually for streaming video, a Gig switch will handle the streaming better than a garbage 100meg switch. Yes you may think for servers, but the norm is now that every computer out there is coming with 10/100/1000 NIC's, because 100 is old and dying like 10, 1000 is now the norm. Same as every wireless device out there is now coming with Wireless N, because it is the new G.
Some of you just need to either go back to the century you came from, or actually catch up with the times like most of us that know the direction that things are moving, and have dealt with the headaches caused by using 100 meg switches when streaming video across a network.
