Raid Cards For Mac Pro

I have been a PC user and do some video editing on a Supermicro dual xeons with 4 WD Raptor drives. One boot, two on a raid O for video and the last as an export disc. The system is too slow for HD
I have used Edius for years but plan on movie to Final Cut Studio.
I am concerned about the Mac Pro Raid Card. There have been some complaints about this card on the Apple website. There is also a 4 to 6 week delay on this card--New Card???
I will be ordering a Mac Pro with:
• Two 2.93GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
• 16GB (8x2GB)
• Mac Pro RAID Card--4 to 6 wk delay due to this card
• 640GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s
• ATI Radeon HD 4870 512MB
• One 18x SuperDrive
and add 4 x 1TB WD1002FBYS (Raid version). My plan is to use one as a boot, two in a Raid O and the last for export. I also ordered a Dell UltraSharp 2709W 27-inch on sale and two days late it was another $50 less.

Imac Pro Graphics Card

Not sure what to do next, please help. I have recently bought a mac pro which did not come with a Mac Pro RAID card. I was able to obtain a RAID card from Apple but it did not come with install instructions.
I have spent hours with AppleCare support but none of them was able to help me because since the card is so new. I brought it to an Apple store and they told me that the card was missing some cables and they told me that there wasn't anything they could do for me.
This is the only RAID out there which can boot into the OS X which is why I went out of my way to get it from Apple. Apparently, the installation of this RAID card is more involved than just simply plugging it into one the available PCI slots. I am trying to take advantage of the hardware RAID speed (namely RAID 5) so I don't have to worry about backing up my data manually.
If anyone has any ideas or instructions on how to install this card I would be so grateful. Thank you so much in advance.
