That is RAID 50 at that point, two stripping RAID 5s(if I am reading what you want to do right). You can expand RAID arrays with decent RAID cards but I am thinking with on board you are stuck backing up, hitting the delete array button and creating a new one. I doubt your on board will let you do RAID 50 now that I think about it as well. IF you insist on that setup with your existing hardware it would have to be two RAID 5's stripped through the OS software.... kind of a head ache and asking for problems.

What are you doing with the array? does it have to be one single RAID and extra redundancy? if so go RAID 6
