USB 3 on the other hand has nice kit out there already and should be a nice speed increase with no real down sides.

IF I was looking for a new system I'd remove Sata 6 and USB 3 from the equation and pick which ever board best fits my needs.
IF its the GB....consider S6 and U3 a bonus!
If its the Asus....the U3S6 daughter card Asus has promised will be a cheap future upgrade for you when you NEED Sata 6 and USB 3.

YMMV ;)
Which kit are you talking about? I'm looking to pick up an external enclosure that uses USB 3.0.

I read about that PCI-E card, but has it been delayed or something? I think it was announced weeks back and I'm still waiting for the card to be available at NCIX.
