A Mac is short for "Macintosh." It's not an acronym, thus it should not be capitalised.
To put it another way:
: a waterproof raincoat made of rubberized fabric
: a data communication protocol sub-layer, also known as the Media Access Control
: a brand name which covers several lines of personal computers designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc.
Ditto for iPod.
The iMac has Firewire 800, so be sure that the RAID case you buy has that compatibility (its waaaaaay faster than USB2, which is your only other option).
Basically I think you will end up wanting to buy a new RAID array, though this is not really my area of expertise. You could certainly re-use the drives you have if you wanted, though -- they'll just need to be erased/reformatted/re-set-up as a RAID array.
