Do I need my RAID card?

I have a Mac Pro one quad-core 2.66 Ghz Intel Xeon with a MacPro Raid Card
and four 1 TB 7200-rm serial ATA2. My RAID card battery died (I hadn't used the system for a while) and I repurchased a new one. However, I'm not sure I need it. I originally purchased the RAID card because I thought I was going to use the system as a large database and was told the RAID card would be a sufficient means of keeping the data safe, so to speak. However, I now am not using the system for its original purpose, and am wondering if I can just remove the RAID card or deactivate it without removing it, or would keeping it be advisable regardless of the computerís new use? I suppose I don't want to have to rebuy new RAID card batteries each time they die (the system is now on a backup UPS). Your thoughts would be appreciated.
