10Gb network upgrade


I've been looking to upgrade from gig for a few yrs now. 10Gb is only slightly more expensive than 2.5/5Gb at this point and there's more hardware support, so I figured why not. I'm running fiber to wall jacks in the living room, office and bedrooms. I'll probably use copper/DAC cables to connect PCs to the wall just for durability.

So far I've decided on:
Mikrotik RB4011iGS+RM layer 3 switch for routing, gig LAN, IPsec acceleration and SFP+ connection to 10g switch.
Mikrotik CRS305-1G-4S+IN 10g switch
ASUS XG-C100F 10g NICs

Only 3 usable ports kind of sucks, but this will let me wire up my server and 2 PCs for relatively cheap, and I can always add another switch later if I need.
