The answer to this will depend on how the RAID array is to be used, and how much storage space you need.  RAID 10 will get you speed and fault tolerance, but you'll "lose" half your disk capacity.  RAID 5 will get you fault tolerance (and only "cost" you 300GB), but disk access will be a little slower.

What are your priorities?
