as soon as you goto software raid 5 you'll get a good performance hit. 
Head for the hardware raid cards then.  You can get the 3ware ide cards 
for 150 or less now.

My "Foundation" verse:
Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and 
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
