If you were doing it for the speed increase, then why would you be
using IDE drives and software RAID? SCSI drives and Hardware
controllers are going to provide much better performance.
If you are doing it for reliability only, then why bother with
pseudo-hardware RAID controllers, just use linux's built-in software
RAID. It's probably more reliable than the pseudo-hardware stuff.
