    Why do you want to use them in RAID? Whatever the reason, you should always use the same kind (capacity, speed, cache, whatnot) of hard drives in a RAID array. An old 160GB HDD will be very much slower than a new 500 GB one, so it will not increase, rather decrease performance, and anyways... First tell your goal of using RAID?
