One of my switches at home is a 48 port gigabit switch with a 10GB XFP
uplink on the back. I recently stuck a dual port 10Gb card, plus an
optical transciever in my fileserver, and a matching XFP module into
the switch, so my server is now connected at 10Gb.

The switch cost me ~$100 from Grays Online.
