*Stacks up hard drives* Gulp! Its about half of what I have but it's a heck of alot sexier and faster than a bunch of Samsung F4 drives. Sigh!

Why? it wouldn't have any improvement whatsoever.
PCI Express 2.0 x16 = 8 GB/s
this card = 6.7 GB/s
And all fusion io SSD's are all unbootable. OCZ, supertalent and photofast pci-e are all bootable.
Depends what your doing. Run ESXi and put all your VM's boot VHD's onto the IO-drive, *poof* instant boot-ability. If your spending that kind of cash then your not building a gaming rig, your building something for data processing.

Why make it so long, it wont fit most cases, wouldn't it be better to just make it wider like with videocards? or offer the card in a long configuration as well as a wide one.

It's not designed for a ATX case, it's designed for a full length rackable server. It's low-profile could allow it to fit into a 1U chassis.

[citation][nom]climber[/nom]Considering the original Octal drive costs $100K, the next gen one will be 1.5x - 2x more expensive.[/citation]
