How do I transfer the contents of a Raid array (2x80GB, Striped) to a new HDD so it still boots?

My current PC, a few years old now, has a pair of 80GB hdds which are running on a RAID array so the data is striped.
I want to increase the capacity of this computer, but I am not sure how to go about it properly. I plan on buying a 300gb HDD to replace these two drives.
Basic copying of the data is no problem, but what I need is an exact copy of the RAID's contents so that I can boot from the new disk the same as I do now, so boot sector and everything needs to be okay.
How do I go about this?
