On board SATA.

Does Haveing on board SATA release you from the constraints of running an add in card to the PCI bus?  Bandwidth issues?  I'm pretty confused about this?  also what is PCI-X exactly? HELP! :wtf:

If you have onboard SATA, then you dont need to have an add in card.  If your motherboard has an onboard SATA controller (some use the regular ATA one), you'll get the same speeds as a SATA PCI card.

i realize that i dont need an add in card for SATA, if i have it on board, but i was just wondering if this provided any speed benifit over a PCI SATA controller card.  Sorry i guess i was  pretty unclear about that.... :)

As far as I know, it does not.  The speed is limited by the standard, not by the PCI (you can run 440MB/s USB2 via PCI, or 1gbps LAN, and SATA is only 150MB/s)
