In general (there are a few exceptions for high end server boards):

-Onboard raid is not hardware raid and is not good.

-A raid card that costs less than $200 probably isn't hardware raid and
 is the same as the onboard raid just on a pci card.  I suspect there may
 be a few hardware raid cards just below $200, but probably not many.
 There are many software raid cards at around $100.

It's that simple really.
