Speed of capture in monitor mode


I have one doubt about the speed of packets capture in monitor mode. If i have a 300mbps usb wifi adapter in monitor mode, what is the max speed of packet capture?

The 300mbps of my adapter is associated with the 802.11n network, if i connect in 802.11g network, the speed gonna be lower, but in monitor mode, how this works!?
