Is there any real life speed difference between 100 and 1000? Im going to be transfering 69,000mb later on and would spend a little bit more time diagnosing if it will help with the time it will take.

There's a significant difference between 100 mbps and 1000 mbps. 100 mbps maxes out at ~12 MB/s whereas I can get 50-60 MB/s on gigabit. It will definitely save you quite a while transferring 69GB.
