I'm just hoping for RAID 0/1/5/10 support with SATA III, USB 3.0, Thunderbolt, Dual PCI-e 3.0 x16, a couple x1 or even x4 slots and good overclocking controls for K series CPU's for under $150.
Also please no PCI slots, PS/2, LPT, SATA II, IDE, Floppy or COM ports. They just waste space that can be used on new connectors.
Though for now I could really care less about thunderbolt. The only time I connect an external is for backup purposes. Internal RAID is a must though. I have dual SSD's in RAID 0 and three data hard drives in RAID 0. That way I get extreme speed and capacity for storage and programs.

Imo HDD and storage is the only thing I do not ever never buy used. I mean, this is where you store the precious data. your pc can fail completely, if the hdd survives you still have the data. buying cpu mothoerboards ram gpu wtever doesn't compromises the data. HDD's do. moreover HDD's have a limited lifetime that is limited by the use they had. I buy almost everything used or refurbished including ES cpu's and such but I never ever buy used storage devices.
