yeah, there's a reason it's not in my main post, it has so many little hidden limitations, and fully loaded it can't even match the bandwidth on the 6610's rear ports alone, while running the same fans and PSUs. not to mention the 10gbe modules are at insane prices these days (like, $400 each or more), so the only way to really get a usable config is to buy one that already has a module like the one you linked. I've specd them for a couple clients who had very specific needs that the 8030 codetrain on the 6610 couldn't fill in colo like mss clamping in hardware to accommodate gre tunnels, etc, but for home use mehNot sure if this is much of a good deal, but I came across this listing on ebay for anyone looking for a ICX7450-48p for $400 OBO:

Honestly though the 7450 seems like such an odd switch to me. It's so much less capable than the 6610, but just as loud/power hungry. I mean, it doesn't even have as many 10gb SFP+ as the 7250! I guess if you really, really need a few 802.3bt ports for something?
