Default SCSI drives and PCI-based audio interfaces

Well, I recognize that several engineers use SCSI drives for audio,
and I have always heard people say SCSI drives are the better choice
if you can afford it, although I have never actually heard a technical
explanation on why SCSI drives are better. Anyway:

I have got the opportunity to install an Adaptec SCSI adapter card and
a couple of SCSI drives into my computer, and I just wonder if I would
benefit from doing that?

I mean, wouldn't Digi001 have to share PCI bus capacity with the SCSI
adapter, and by doing that gain reduced performance?

Any response would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
