I'd like to know what kind of hardware I'll need to set up a Gigabit network in the company I work in. We're 12 workers with a few splitters and 3 servers. We already have a Gigabit router and 1 splitter. Do I need new cables? Thanks for your answers.

To make your network completely Gigabit, you will need all routers and switches to be Gigabit capable. You will also need Gigabit capable network cards in all machines.
Cat 5 cabling is able to support 1000-BaseT, however Cat 5e may give slightly better perforamnce
