Good advice! I really like my 40GbE LAN using Ebay hardware.

We need to drop CAT to get > ~5GbE in a practical way, this is why 10GbE is still not really standard, we want to keep CAT and it is not really good enough for 10GbE even today. If I were to get on-board 10GbE I would want it to use SFP+.
