Default Transferring Mirrored Disks

I just built my new rig and I'm trying to move all the data over. In my old rig I had 2x 500GB mirrored drives and I was wondering what the best way to transfer the data (and drives) over to the new computer.

1) Can I take out one drive, place it in the new computer, back up the information and then bring the second drive over and setup the raid?
2) Do I need to back up the information, move both disks over and reformat?

Whats the best way to do this?
Current Rig: C2D E6400 @ 3.0GHz, Vendetta II, BFG 8800 GT, OCZ PC6400 8GB, HX520W, 2x WD 500GB HD, Segate 160GB, WD 200 GB HD, Lancool PC-K62, Windows 7 64 bit, Snow Leopard (on the way)
