Mac Pro RAID 10 options

I am looking to set up a RAID 10 array to speed up data write speeds and to add a secondary layer of protection for a business critical Macintosh Pro G5. This machine currently houses 4 SATA ports, but software limits me to 1 or 0.  Can I get a recommendation for either an internal controller, an external drive bay option? Cost is a concern, and I would like to avoid 600+ $ price tag that apple shows on their website (not to mention the lack of configuration option that I am looking for).  This machine would host the Mac OS on a SSD, and the 4 disks in RAID would be data only.  Anyone with experience that could throw me some advice would be thoroughly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dan

Have you thought about an external RAID which would plug into the macintosh via FireWire 800 or an additional SCSI card?  This may give you more options.
