well, I would use a hardware raid controller for sata 3 unless intel presents a hardware solution for x79. so, that's 5 ports. 4 for gpu's, one for raid controller. Does anyone own a g1.assassin or sniper mb. I would be curious how the creative audio sounds on them. BTW, EATX and XL-ATX are the future so why not 7 ports?
