Overall, we've been real happy with our Appro cluster.  I'd look at them.
If you're not necessarily going towar Myrinet or Infiniband (and Appro
supports infiniband....) and are thinking GigE, I like Foundry EdgeIron
switches.  They are not as cheap as HP but their stats and our experience
say they're non- blocking and just work..
