@Avery. I just thought I might throw this into the mix. Even if just for a FYI curiousity : A couple of AutoCAD folk I know are very excited about this corei7 mainboard and its support for 24GB RAM and numerous pcie slots for all that SSD blitzkrieg.
Depending on if a particular mainboard supports them, 4GB 8GB DDR3 sticks are not too far away. Wont be cheap though. But playing in the high end never is....
