I need a new Mac. Please help me understand the RAID Card option, and why I should or should not include it with my purchase.

Almost all of my work involves Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign, in that order. Here's the configuration I'm considering:
• Two 2.26GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
• 12GB RAM (6x2GB)
• Mac Pro RAID Card
• HD 1: 640GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s
• HD 2: 640GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s
• NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512MB (for Apple 30" display)
• Two 18x SuperDrives
Please explain to me why I need--or don't need--the RAID card option, or if I'm overlooking better options and configurations.
And please, no "You should/could get a PC for half that price!" answers. I use a Mac.
