The ocz vertex 2's look nice but I would just raid some velociraptors for now if you have money for that kind of thing.
A PCI-E SATA 3.0 controller card performance compared to onboard would depend on the quality of the part.
I wouldn't wait for SATA 6 Gbit/s hardware and buy on release since prices in this sector tend to plummet more rapidly than others.
I'm waiting for SATA 6 Gbit/s, minimum 500gb, £159.
Maybe in a year?
