    New system....please help

    scottymo15

      I need some help in building a system for Adobe CS4....primarily to use with premiere and after effects.  I found a system from the video guys, and I'm going to build something similar to what they suggested.  Here is what I'm looking at.

       

      Motherboard - Asus P6T Deluxe V2

       

      Processor - Intel Core i7 920     2.6ghz

       

      RAM - I'm wanting 12gb of Ram...not sure what brand or speed......hoping to be able to get this for under 250 bucks

       

      Hard Drives - I'm wanting to just get 4 hard drives.  I read Harm's article on Raid's and am still a little confused.  Do you think i will be ok getting these Hard drives, and if I do, how should I set them up?

       

      one 1TB 7200 drive for boot and three 2 TB drives for everything else.....if i do this, no RAid correct???

       

      Would I be better off getting smaller drives and getting more of them to do RAID??

       

      I have my case and power supply already.

       

      Windows 7 professional

       

      Blu Ray Burner - LG 8x burner for 129.99

       

      Graphics Card.....not real sure on.....Either ATI Raedon 5870 or Nvidia GTX 285.  I am open to other cards, but I am on a budget.  :]

       

      I would love any suggestions or thoughts.....I'm hoping to strike up some black friday deals!!

       

      happy thanksgiving to everyone!!!
