[Gerald Baria] "It is my understanding that you can connect Top class multiple GPUs, RedRockets, RAID etc thru one of those thunderbolt adapters to any TB enabled mac right? So what the problem?"

In fact, you can't connect even one GPU via Thunderbolt, let alone multiple top class ones. It's 4x pipe is way too slow to allow for a GPU to deliver its full performance and it just isn't possible under OSX at the moment at all, regardless of the bandwith limitation. As far as the rest is concerned, yeah, some options there, but video io, a raid and two monitors at the same time and there goes your bandwith and reliability.
