I want to get gigabit speeds on my existing 10/100 UTP cabling. I read that I just need to buy a gigabit switch to replace my 10/100 and I'm good to go since all my computers' motherboard have onboard gigabit lan. How true is this?

I'm getting 100mbps (LAN) speeds on my current setup but I really need to up it to gigabit speeds.
