That depends. Software raid is fine for raid1 and raid0. If you want 
raid5 or raid6, you have to use hardware raid with bbu cache that 
matches the size of the array notwithstanding the limiting to 10 disks 
max. consideration.

cpu performance/amount of RAM available is a non-issue and has been for 
a decade.
