raid pci card

hi...let's say i have a storage system with a 80 gig hd for the OS and 4x250 gigs on a sata 150 controller on the pci bus. it's not pci-X, just regular old pci, 32-bit. i heard that the pci cards actually minimize the bandwidth because of its limitations. yet so many systems have sata controllers on the pci bus. i also heard that having the raid on the mobo itself is better but the maximum devices on most mobos is like 2. so what's the bandwidth on the above mentioned system with the sata 150 pci controller?
