One of the machine configurations I'm considering has USB 3.0 on the motherboard, and the case has enough extra 5.25" drive bays that I'm considering an internal card reader. Trouble is I have not seen too many available on the market other than this one:http://www.amazon.com …B003OC9LZG/ref=pd_vtp_e_2
Anybody have recommendations? Thanks.
Don't consider anything without USB 3 on the motherboard. There are a couple of brands of USB 3 card reader, Lexar seems good.

but does wonders on vmware hypervisor 5!!!!
Yeah lots of RAM is handy if you're running multiple VMs and OS's, but photographers don't tend to do that. I had a machine with 32GB of RAM once, running 5 OS's, each running its own server software.

So Tim you are saying that one can move the catalog only to the SSD for faster rendering. If it's faster than what I am already getting then damn I may have to give it a try. How do you have your folder on the SSD set up for your LR catalog? Do you have to move it via LR so the images won't get disconnected?
Yes. The folder on the SSD is just a regular folder, just copy it there then open it in LR. I don't know if LR can move a catalog itself.
