    Advice on CS5 system config for AVCHD




      I am looking to build a new computer for premiere pro CS5 for editing AVCHD as hobby. The spec that I am looking at now is


      a) Intel i7 980x

      b) 12 GB RAM

      c) nVidia GTX285

      d) 1st hard disk for OS

      e) 2nd hard disk for scratch


      For the additional hard disks which i will be purchasing, would like to know if raid setup is necessary for media etc because I have read that the processor and ram should be able to handle the AVCHD. I am looking for a smooth and less time consuming for AVCHD.
