Regulation with pci 6221

Hello,
 
I'm planning on developing an application for regulating a hydraulic system. Typically the regulation loop (VB/VB.NET) will read 10 AI-channels and based on the measured values a new AO-signal will be generated. What kind of speeds can I expect with the PCI-6221? The system will need about 100Hz two operate correctly. I ask because I have no experience when it comes to communiaction and latency regarding the PCI-bus.
 
The system will be developed in either VB or VB.net.
 
All suggestions are welcome
 
Thanks,
Øyvind

from the datasheet, your PCI card has an output rate of 833 kS/s (833000 Hz).... hum, and your setup requires about 100Hz.
I can tell you: the hardware is MUCH faster than what you need and won't limit your application!
