I would likely approach this by installing everything on SSD and then after the install is complete assemble MD array or LVM+MD on top of some level of RAID for rest of the drives.

That pool would likely be mounted to /mnt/storage or something like that and then I would symlink main directories from home to that storage so they're saved on redundant storage.

This would speed up overall things as firefox profile and things like that would be loaded from fast ssd drive while persistent data (Downloads, Music, etc.) would be on redundant array.

Of course this depends solely on your wishes and ideas, so if you have anything else in mind let us know and I'll chime in with potential solutions.
