I'd say it's the other way round: write cache is dangerous with softupdates. Softupdates itself is certainly better than no softupdates, even if it takes a slight performance drop by disabling write cache. I think you should disable the write cache on the 3ware cache (not sure whether there actually is one, mine don't come with any RAM sockets) anyway as you'll lose all data in there in the event of a crash.
