Which Raid Type i use?

I will buy HP proliant DL380 G9 (K8p43A) this model come with 2 HD 300 GB and I will buy 2 HD 600 GB (652583-B21)

This model contain Smart Array P440ar/2GB FBWC

 My question is can I configure this hard disks with Raid 5 or Raid 10 also can I do this with this built in Smart Array controller or I need to buy more cards?

You may waste a lot of space if you create a RAID5 with disks of different size.

Better use disks of same size.

Hope this helps!
