Anyway no HDD can physically reach those transfer speeds yet. Maybe SSDs, and I'm not even sure of that...

The 3gb/sec isn't anywhere near actual data transfer speeds. A good way to see an actual speed of something is taking say the USB speed of 480mb/s and dividing it by 10. The 48mbs is MUCH closer to the actual speed, often times the advertised speed is the maximum possible burst speed not a prolonged data transfer.

I think we wont see 3gig / fast speeds till we get better mobos. and when PCI 3.0 gets more tuned / used.

We had quite the discussion/debate about the whole 3Gb/sec and what speeds you'll actually see a few weeks ago.
