Yes, I like the size of mATX and I really don't want anything physically larger. The Strix motherboard pretty much eliminates whatever compromises existed with the Maximus VIII Gene. 10GbE is a nice luxury to have. It really improves performance to my NAS immensely. I recently picked up another card for my HP Elite 8300 for $32, so it's no longer prohibitively expensive if you are willing to buy used from Ebay.
