My System Specs

Id honestly be happy with either but SAS 12GB/s is really showing some nice potential.
I'd rather have controllers simplified and streamlined instead of added or slaved on to other channels.
So my hope is too that SAS perhaps migrates itself into the desktop applications.

Time, will tell.
