I read about Thunderbolt in Wikipedia but I don't really understand what it's for. Do I really need it? I will have the Dell U3011 monitor (2560 x 1600).

Otherwise, do these two boards perform the same? I will be doing 3D content-creation (3DS Max, modo, etc).

The other hardware I plan on:

You read about thunderbolt in wikipedia but you don't know what it's for? Maybe you should go back and read it again, and pay attention this time.

He could have worded that better, but I think his point is that if you don't know what it is or what it's for, then you probably don't need it.

Thanks. I'm asking about it on another forum that is specific about 3D content-creation.
