Windows 7: Wanda high-bandwidth connection within a star shaped ethernet LAN

Wanda high-bandwidth connection within a star shaped ethernet LAN

I am running a home LAN with a 10/100/1000 switch using a number of Windows XP and Windows 7 machine. Set up as a workgroup not a home group. I am interested in allowing two of the machines to communicate a much higher rate because I transfer very large video files between them frequently.
I am not certain about the rules for an ethernet network. I could install PCI-E fiber-optic cards in these two machines and establish a very high bandwidth between them. Could I somehow do this however and bypass the switch. I am familiar with PCs having multiple network cards but I do not know the rules for the network architecture involved.
I did not see any other technology that would boost the bandwidth much beyond 1000 other than fiber-optic.
Any tips appreciated.
Kevin
