    Is it better to use SSD for scratch or source files or both?

    rmshro0 Level 1

      I am building a new rig for CS5 and have a 256GB SSD and a 3x300GB VelociRaptor RAID 5 array to work with.  I was thinking of installing the OS and CS5 software on the SSD then copy files for the current project ONLY to the SSD while working.

       

      THEN after it is done copy the source and project files to the larger array for later use if needed.

       

      Does this sound reasonable?  Or would it be best to keep the project and source media on the larger disk array and just specify to CS5 to use the SSD for scratch only?
