Due to Tx/Rx load balancing issues of bonded ethernet ports you'll be
far better off using a single port 10GbE NIC, if your switch has a 10GbE
uplink port.  Intel offers the X540-T1 copper for about $100 more than
the 4 port GbE card above.  It will save you a lot of time/effort trying
to get proper load balancing with bonding.
