Data point here: We have a Linux software RAID quite close to the setup you
describe, with an onboard Adaptec controller and four 146GB 10000rpm disks,
and we get about 65MB/sec sustained when writing to an ext3 filesystem
(actually, when wgetting a file off the gigabit LAN :-) ). I haven't tested
reading, though.
