Yes, I tink it would work and you would get 8GB of swap.

You are aware that if sda breaks, you loose the /boot partition and
you can't boot anymore ? I would suggest creating a 100MB /boot
partition on all 3 disks as a RAID 1 (4GB for boot is over kill IMHO).
That way you can loose any disk and still be able to boot.

Good luck
