There's also some offering from Mikrotik that support 10G SFP+ that are
under the $500 mark


'CRS305-1G-4S+IN: Five-port desktop switch with one Gigabit Ethernet
port and 4 SFP+ 10Gbps ports'


'CRS309-1G-8S+IN: Desktop switch with one Gigabit Ethernet port and
eight SFP+ 10Gbps ports'


you can connect your 10G machines to these with either a SFP+ fibre
module and fibre patch leads, or with a DAC (Direct Attached Copper) cable

'S+DA001: SFP/SFP+ direct attach cable, 1m'
