    Where to use the slowest drive?


      Hello all,


      I've been lurking and reading the great advice given by those on this forum.  I'm building a system for CS5 and am going with the 4 drive configuration suggested by members of this forum.  I have the following:


      3 x SAMSUNG HD103SJ 1TB 7200 rpm

      1 x Western Digital WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 rpm


      From what I read, the WD benchmarks slower.  Where should I slot this into my configuration?  Perhaps it makes sense to use it as the OS drive, but I'd hate for other non-CS5 apps to miss out on performance of a better drive.
