Disk failure on raid 1 and no access.

We have 2 73GB Seagate Barracudas in Raid 1 in our server, one brilliant coworker of mine on hearing of the problem with our database desided to pull one of the drives out because they are hot swapable and check to see if the other drive had an uncorrupted database then seeing it was the same he pushed it back (thus making it start a rebuild) pulled the other and checked that one resulting in the blue screen of death and disk failure. so now i have two drives with ALL my data from the last 3 months unobtainable. Any ideas on what I can do about this without having to spend $500-$4000 on a specialist?

BTW this isn't just a SATA or ATA drive it's something else. I think it's SCSI? I'm not sure but it looks like a big version of SATA with no power port that i can see.

this is neither a raid 5 or 0 nor is it just easily set up like that, it's a scsi drive i think and i have no scsi computers other then the server which we don't want to put it into because we need to back up the data first. the problem is that we only have the one computer that has these connections and no other drives will fit in there. so i don't know how to do this. i have the scsi adapter thing which i think i saw in a PCI-E slot which  I think is the only PCI-E computer we have. basically, does anyone know of the type of hdd i'm talking about and is there any kind of external that supports it?

It would be easy to find out what hardware configuration for the Dell! check the service tag or express code stickers outside the box, then get online:

Input service tag, you will find all history of that system, and specs.
