Skip what you are doing, and tell me what you are trying to do... 
Thinking way outside the box can give other options.  For example, do 
you need 10gbe from everything to everything, or just to a few things to 
one thing?  In that case, a lot of nics on the one thing, and direct 
connect can work and be VERY cheap. 

If you have a small cluster that needs to communicate, the 8 port 
Netgear is the best value. 
  Yeah, I do not believe the free shipping part for SA. :)

Also Trendnet just released a line of 10GbE switches, and I have had 
very good luck with them.  Nice value for the money.
