Just curious what everyone's thoughts are on the 6 gb/s sata ports and USB 3.0. The exact same motherboard with the only difference being that one has the USB 3.0 port and high speed sata line and the other does not, is around $40 extra. Has anyone gotten any "real" use out of these neat little upgrades? Aside from being able to load pictures from my camera to my computer faster, the faster USB port would just be a convieneince. Most platter lever hard drives are only rated at 3 GB/s anyway, even the raptors. SSD's are still a bit out of my price range for the cost per GB. Would you pay the extra $40?
