I guess this would be the best place to pose the question. I am starting to investigate options for my next computer and I was thinking of going down the route of using a RAID 5 set up with 5 standard hard drives with a sixth small solid state drive for OSes. Is it possible to set this up with the SB750 on an AMD board or should I be looking else where if I want to go down this route?

I have been asking myself the same question...
There does not seem to be any quick solution/answer.

When msi announced the Fusion P55 BB Motherboard the questions started thick and heavy.
I could not figure why there was only one MoBo builder with Lucid HYDRA 200 on board w/out
USB 3.0 AND SATA 3.0.

Then Intel announced that they were abandoning USB 3.0 for one DisplayPort connector Cable...
and... here we go again.

The only one reason that I found, now remember we are talking Intel, is complicated by a lack
of information from Intel. One thread that I followed was taken from the idea of an obscure
engineer with a few significant facts that we should not ignore. The buzz is clear curve.

 The importance of Clear Curve: http://www.corning.com/clearcurve/index.aspx
Clear Curve is Corning's solution to mechanical limitations of fiber optic cables. the old cables do not
lend themselves to in house application because of the 90 degree bends required to complete the install.
Clear Curve makes the 90 degree bends with or with out copper wire included. ***Clear Curve*** has
been accepted by building code and is now being installed in all new construction in the USA.

Fujitsu recently announced a solution that may affect our decisions as well. Their new product, the...

 
This chip is not yet available at Electronic Supply; however, it has been recently added to their parts lists.

There is one other interesting bit of information that complicates my decision to next build and that is:
The Lucid HYDRA driver Engineers have not been able to complete the bridge to HYDRA from the 5970.
Their attempts to write a driver that will recognize the second GPU have failed and the last statement
I read, sorry no link or names, was that it did not appear that there was a solution in sight. 01Dec09 Y

true... most of it is; however, " I am starting to investigate options for my next computer ", your statement.
Mine: I have been asking myself the same question...
There does not seem to be any quick solution/answer.

It seems that a tremendous amount of data and firmware is being put on hold or changing. OEMs are changing
numbers and names and applications faster than hardware people can make a part. Is the Desktop PC world
crumbling around us or is it just 7.4 on the Richter Scale... The ground is moving under our feet as we speak lol... woah

but no to your question I meant it here.

True I guess it did help me a bit on that side of things. Things are changing fast but you can still never get the combos that you are after. Like AMD 790 FX (think it was that one at least) boards with 2 sockets for desktop
