Had to run some small offices with SIP hardphones and basic switches. Unless you are doing things wrong (network loops…), your switch shouldn't be an issue for such a small network. Depending on the voice codec you use, a VoIP conversation if a few kB/s, so don't be obsessed with GigE.

Some hardphones have an integrated switch. Don't daisy chain phones this way, and be careful not to invert LAN and PC port.
