    What is better? 1xSSD+4xHDD vs. 2xSSD+2xHDD

    bhra0 Level 1

      I'm thinking of buying a new workstation for Adobe Premiere (and sometimes After Effects). Considering my budget, I have two options to choose from: either to buy 2 x SSD + 2 x HDD or 1 x SDD + 4 x HDD.

      I've prepared two setups and I wonder which one would give a better performance:

       

      1)

      - 1 x Samsung 128GB SSD840 Pro for OS and appz

      - 1 x Samsung 128GB SSD840 Pro for cache and projects

      - 1 x Western Digital Caviar Blue 1 TB for raw media

      - 1 x Western Digital Caviar Blue 1 TB for exporting

       

      OR

       

      2)

      - 1 x Samsung 128GB SSD840 Pro for OS and appz

      - 2 x Western Digital Caviar Blue 1 TB in RAID0 for raw media

      - 1 x Western Digital Caviar Blue 1 TB for cache and projects
      - 1 x Western Digital Caviar Blue 1 TB for exporting

       

      Or maybe I should try something else? Thank you in advance for all the suggestions.
