In October we POUNDED the heck out of a single server with a gigabit 
ethernet port with 8 clients doing full screen video, tuxpaint and 
other, firefox and other apps.

It fell apart quickly with a flaky switch.  We replaced the switch and 
it worked beautifully.

In my experience these things failing is almost always a broken switch.

My second guess is the graphic driver is having trouble with this 
particular graphic card.  You really need to verify this by testing 
entirely different client hardware to narrow it down to network vs. 
graphic driver.
