Default nForce 3 SATA vs Silicon Image SATA

My Epox motherboard has 6 SATA ports. Two are provided
by the nForce3 250GB chipset, the other four are provided
by an onboard Silicon Image PCI SATA controller.

I have three PATA and one SATA drive.

Currently, for SATA, I can only use the Silicon Image controller,
as there was no support for the NF3 250GB SATA function
in Linux.

But now that support is on its way (it's already in 2.6.7-bk8),
I will be able to choose.

Which one is expected to be better/faster?
