Help Increasing Storage Space for ProLiant DL360e Gen8

I have a ProLiantDL360e Gen 8 server with a Smart Array P420.  My array is is Raid 5 with 5 300 GB SAS HDD and there is 1 drive bay open as well but would like to increase the amount of space I have by more than just 300 GB's.  Looking for suggestions on the best way to do that? Is it as easy as just buying another drive and putting it in the empty drive bay?  Can I buy a larger drive say 500GB and just put it in the empty drive bay or will that still only give me an additional 300?
