I wasn't sure about the terminology there, I assumed a motherboard raid controller included its own processor, etc.

So I think my best option is to go with the pci raid card and pure hardware raid. This way my limitation is if the raid card itself fails, in which case you say you can normally get a similar type of card in order to retrieve your raid?
Sounds like a good choice. Since top performance doesn't seem to be your goal, I'd recommend buying a mid-range controller card. In the unlikely event of a controller failure, you won't have to shell out an arm and a leg to get another high-end controller to access your data.
At long last...
