Well I will defintely get this when LGA 2011 comes around as it has been rumored it's PCI 3.0 lanes are king. I would like to imagine the boards that support it will have plenty of PCI x4 slots to full x16 slots and be fast no matter how many devices are on them. EVGA will probably be the leader in that class as they tend to make the boards like the 3-way and 4-way SLI/CROSSFIRE.

Right!

Now, why didn't this great component make it into the "Dream Machine 2011"? This would have truly been worthy of a place in the "everything I want in a PC, but can't afford" machine.

Maybe because of the SLI configuration, board layout etc.

This looks like a 1x pci-e board. The mobo in the DM2011 can't take a pci-e board... a full size one anyway. Notice the heat sink right behind the pci-e slot and you'll see what I mean. Can't put a card down in there unless you saw off the back part of it.

Basically with the DM2011 mobo, that means no sound cards, no revo drives, nothing except maybe a serial port card in a short-form-factor design.

Summary: that mobo's pci-e slot is useless.

I persoanlly would have dropped one of the three video card to be able to make room for the this. I think 2 EVGA 580's would still provide plenty of graphics power.

Can you say one less 580 be worth the performance hit vs the potential gain with this over SSDs?  I think the only solution is a bigger motherboard.

Hmmmm, would I rather have "reads of 550MB/s and writes of over 250MB/s" or reads of 1.5GB/s and writes of 1.25GB/s? I think I would sacrifice a few fps to gain that type of throughput on my storage device (which is typically the bottleneck of any computer).
