10 Gb Ethernet Cards

Visit the US, buy hardware from Fry's. Wanted to play with 10G Ethernet for my servers. Very expensive in Europe, sometimes significantly cheaper here. This one was 200$. Sadly they had only one. Where could I buy cards cheaply online/Europe?? But funny with the heatsink on a network card.

They also had a 200$ 10G switch but only with 2 10G ports, not so useful for my purpose, even with a extra 1G ports :-) Any suggestions for low-cost switches?

Also, this is 200-400x faster than my Internet connection, so obviously not so useful for external connections. But maybe I can increase the speed of my backup processes from one file server to another :-)
