Ah, indeed, but 'external data transfer rate'. I doubt that's a
sustained rate from the platters though.

Sure, but where are you going to get a PCI-express controllers from?
The 3Ware thing is PCI-X - should be enough though. </smartarse>
If you're looking at 3Ware and 3Ware claim 380MB/s RAID-5 writes are
possible, I'd say "ask them".

Fill what's empty.
Empty what's full.
Scratch where it itches.
