    NEW BUILD To RAID or not to RAID?




      I will be using my new pc mainly for adobe premiere pro cs5.5 importing 1080p DSLR footagte and cutting nativly.


      Not sure weather it would be wise to Raid 0 my 2 x 1tb 7200rpm drives or not.  In short which setup would I get better performance with?  If I raid the two 1tb drives what should I use them for?

      D: DVD

      E: Seagate 7200rpm 1tb hdd (Media and Projects)

      F: Seagate 7200rpm 1tb hdd (Previews and Exports)

      E: Seagate 7200rpm 320gb hdd (Media Cache)


      1.5tb external drive for storage


      System specs
