Thanks everyone for your replies. I actually went ahead & ordered 3 Myricom 10G-PCIE2-8B2-2S 2-Port at $40 each from 1 seller on eBay. Does anyone know what the difference is between these & the 10G-PCIE2-8C2-2S?
Can anyone tell me if this cable would work for all 3:

Thanks for the replies.
I found a Myricom 10G-PCIE2-8C2-2S on eBay that supports macOS, Windows, & Linux. Looks perfect. even includes 2 SFP+ adapters. Speaking of those, what kind should I be looking for? Noticed there are a bunch of different types sold on FiberStore.com:
So, my computers are the following, currently connected with 1Gb Ethernet (Comcast 75Mb connection, with Ubiquiti Gb Ethernet router):
- Main - Hackintosh (macOS Sierra 10.12.6)
- Server Hackintosh (macOS Sierra 10.12.6)
- Server Win10 PC (latest version of Windows 10)
They're all in the same...
OK, so what kind of cable would I use to connect the ConnectX2 in my PC or server to the switch's SFP+ port?
I'm thinking of getting the Trendnet TEG-30284 since I like the price and I don't need anything fancy.
Also, I may need to buy a new mobo for my main PC, since it only has 1 PCIE x16 3.0...
Or what about this puppy:
TRENDnet | Products | TEG-30284 | 28-Port Web Smart Switch with 24 x Gigabit ports and 4 x 10G SFP+ slots
NewEgg has these for $340
Are they any good? Looking for reviews . . .
Can someone look at the emulator to see if there are any glaring missing options? I don't...
1 - Assuming I could get link ag. to work correctly, still not as fast as 10GB, most likely & not a huge price diff assuming I can find the right 10GB switch.
2 - Yes.
3 - Need, no. Want, yes. I hate waiting even 3 minutes to transfer a large file. I can handle 30 seconds :)
4 - Current CAT5e...
I've seen a lot of the info posted here on the forums about the LB6M and while hardware-wise it would seem to have what I want, and I'm not opposed to swapping fans, I've pretty much ruled it out since it doesn't seem to have GUI, only CLI. Too bad, since I really like the prices I've seem on...
How about 2 of these, since I'd like to have as many of my PCs connect at 10GB as possible:
How would I even set this up, using my...
Thanks aero. I guess link ag will be out of the question then.
4 of 5 of my PC's, including my server, are in my upstairs "Computer room".
The 5th, my HTPC is downstairs in my living room, roughly 50-75' away. Looks like I'll need to consider 10GB or else stay with plain old GB Ethernet.
Please help me re-make my home network (I feel the need, the need for speed)
My networking ability/knowledge: slightly better than noob. PC/Hackintosh savvy, built my own PCs for about 20 years now, can set up basic ethernet network (cable modem/router), but networking knowledge is minimal...
If you don't mind, how much did each of the drives set you back? I think NewEgg has them for about $119.
Was it difficult to get the drives out of the plastic case & how did you do it?
I think it voids the warranty on the drive, removing it from the case?
What else would it take besides 1 of these Mellanox cards for each of my PCs to set up a 10GB network. A switch I'm sure, but which one? What about OS support for these cards? What about cables?
Right now I'm running the current version of NAS4Free as my file/media server, and have 1 Win8.1 & 1...
