8RDA+ and raid....

I'm upgrading my computer and am gonna get a new mobo and cpu. I'm planning on waiting for barton, and was gonna wait for an Epox nforce2 mobo with raid but i'm having trouble holding out. Would i get a big performance hit using a pci raid card? This computer is for gaming and will be overclocking it to the max. I know that the board has the pci locked so it shouldn't hamper my oc, but will it drain some of my computer power? This is going to be my first Epox board, and have been looking forward to the switch. I don't really want to use serial ata because i would like to save a few bucks and the first models are looking pretty pricey . I know the 8RDA2+ is just around the corner but that will only have serial raid. About how long till it's released? Thanks and have a happy holiday
