Dear Hardware Forum,
I would like to upgrade my 5 year old editing computer (based mostly on Harm’s advice). This system works perfectly, however I recently built a very simple system (I5) for a relative and it is so much faster than my old system that it made me jealous .
My present system:
All disks are 1 TB, 3.0 Gb/s on the 5 SATA 3.0 Gb/s ports.
The disk configuration is
6x SATA 3.0 Gb/s ports:
Port 0: SAMSUNG HD103SJ (boot drive and static data)
Port 5: to LG DVD/ROM Optical Drive
RAID ARRAY_0000 (RAID 0) “Work”
Port 1: SAMSUNG HD103SJ
Port 2: SAMSUNG HD103SJ
RAID ARRAY_0001 (RAID 0) “Scratch”
Port 3: SAMSUNG HD103SJ
Port 4: SAMSUNG HD103SJ
2x SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports (MARVELL)
Port 6G_1: swap drive (front)
Port 6G_2: front top
Does this upgrade makes sense (speed wise)?
Thank you for any advice,
P.S. I apologize for the formatting - it works quite differently from the Office Word with which I am familiar.
