Any performance loss with PCI SATA controller card

Hello!

I am considering obtaining the Plextor PX-716SA:

- would there be a significant performance difference if I connected this through a PCI controller card Vs. the onboard SATA interface on my mobo?

- is this difference sufficent that I ought to just get the IDE version? (PX-716A)

Intel D875PBZ
Intel 3.4E Socket 478
512 MB DDR 3200 x2
ATI Radeon X800 Pro

I have another post regarding my overall question if you'd like to check it out.

Thanks for your information/opinions!!!

- Kevin
