how about the 100 mbps port versus the standard 10 mbps?
You will be able to use at least 1500GB of bandwidth with your server, and should be able to push close to 10mbps or 100mbps at peak times. Shared and dedicated bandwidth really only matters when your pushing 30mbps constantly with some unmetered solution.
A private switch is simply an ethernet switch that, if you have more than one server, will allow you to pool your bandwidth so you only pay for as much bandwidth as that which leaves the switch. Inter-server bandwidth is technically free. More advanced switches can do more, but thats the basics.
Go with a 10mbps port, unless you are hosting 4 or 5 gamesevers. You can always increase the port to 100mbps at a later time if you see yourself spiking to 8mbps or so for long periods of time.
