I have managed Gb switches throughout my network.
Managed it probably overkill (although it's really nice) -- but going Gb in general can be an easy and fabulous upgrade.
I recommend it considering prices are so low.
On Wireless, just keep in mind 5GHz spectrum doesn't mean 5Gb of bandwidth.
Also, keep in mind that wireless is a shared space where wired switches provide multiple collision domains thus better segregating and directing traffic. Wireless simply can't do that. So its throughput will always suffer.
