    RAID-5 is not recommended for installations with more than 100 accounts.
    one of my boxes is self contained using raid 5 on a dell 2950
    your just 20 users over the 100user suggested, in reality what % of the users are actually active at any given time?
    most likley you'll be fine-you could always change later if you needed a performance boost
