HDD2:Extreme Performance (RAID-0) with 2 Identical Hard Drives [+94] (1.5TB (750GBx2)
Break them out of the RAID and make it three drives total.
One for OS/Programs (500 GB, even smaller if you can as this drive should contain nothing but the OS and Programs)
One for Projects/Scratch (750 GB)
One for Media. (750 GB or larger)
SOUND:Creative Labs SB Audigy SE [+30]
Skip that. Use onboard sound.
Thanks for your reply. I do have a stupid question, however. How does a Raid 0 act differently than 2 hds?
You didn't mention the CPU, but I assume you'd be getting the i7 920. Maybe just check out the below thread in regards to the 1600Mhz RAM.
1. The Patriot memory DDR3-1600 may be faster than you need or will use unless you intend to overclock over 3.6 GHz. If you don't need to overclock over 3.6 GHz, DDR3-1333 is enough and likely somewhat cheaper. Remember the 920 at standard clock uses 1066 speed.

Any RAID is two or more hard drives acting as one. The computer and the Operating System see them as a single drive. The only people who really need that are those working with Uncompressed, and if you were in that camp, you'd not be asking these questions, hence the recommendation to skip the RAID.
