Upgrading Mirrored Hard Drives on Dell PowerEdge T110 II Server

My client has a Dell PowerEdge T110 II Server and the mirrored 320 GB hard drives are almost full. I need to purchase and install a pair 1 TB hard drives to replace the current drives.

This server has a PERC S100 (Embedded SATA Software RAID) running the 2 drives in RAID 1.

I've never upgraded hard drives in a server running RAID. If I purchase, 2 new 1 TB drives, what is the best way to clone the current mirrored drives over to the new pair of drives?

Also, I assume I can buy any brand 7200 RPM SATA HDDs as replacements, correct?

Thanks in advance.
