I'm buying a Synology DS212 soon and it supports a gigabit connection. I only have an ethernet router. Should I buy a switch or upgrade my router to take advantage of the gigabit transfer speeds?

I plan on using my NAS to stream 1tb+ of movies, videos, music, etc. to my Apple tv 2. I also have a PS3 and Xbox that I use online.

I appreciate any advice. Thank you.
