How fast is the pci/bus on this system

Hello,
I am configuring a Compaq 5304 (Quad Channel) RAID Controller in a Compaq 6400R.

I plan to have three channels configured on this box - one for the internal storage and two channels conigured with an external diskpack (4354R).

Basically I was wondering what the bus throughput is on the 6400R. I know there are two pci busses - and was considering whether to add an extra controller on a different bus for the internal disks.
Are there any performance benefits in this?

Knowing what the pci slot and system bus throughput rates are would be useful..

Cheers

This server has 64bit 66mhz pci slots - adding a second controller to spread the work around sounds like a good idea
