Well, my slow system gets 10MB/s at least with RAID5. So with better
equipment and enough disks 50MB/s probably is doable.

PCI-Express == PCIe I think. PCI Express == packetised PCI over one

PCI-X and PCI: regular parallel PCI at varying bus widths and clock
rates. (32bit/33MHz (plain old PCI) up to 64/133 (PCI-X)). Oh,
voltage also varies.
