    Hard drive configuration


      I am waiting for hard drive prices to go back down and in the meantime I am trying to setup a hard drive system for my new build. I am a newbie to video editing, and will be editing 1080p MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 (Canon Rebel t2i). I have 8 gigs of ram.


      Here is what I have available <what I think they should be in angled brackets>:

      60GB SSD (Corsair Force 3) <OS/progs>

      500GB 7200rpm external (but connected via esata) <media/data>

      300GB 5400rpm notebook drive <scratch disk>

      250GB 5400rpm notebook drive <? page file?>


      What is the recommended  configuration for this? (this is just to last me for about 6 months or so)

      Thanks in advance
