Ideal set up- Video Editing/FusionDrive/SSD

Hi ,

As I am now upgrading my hardware to the new 27" Imacs, Just wondering what your ideal/recommended set up would be for Editing video in FCPx and Adobe After Effects.

so I now would have a fusion drive, a thunderbolt SSD drive and several 7200rpm Firewire800 drives. I dont want to overcomplicate things unessecarily if the benefit is minimal.

My intention was to the software would run from the SSD part of the fusion drive, the project would sit on the main hard drive (and hence the render files?) and the Raw Media on the external SSD(or seperate firewire). Not using the firewire drives for anything other then Archiving.

Am I overlooking anything or would it be preferable to even save the project on the External SSD along with the Raw files?

just want to get it right in my head before I set up the new iMac, thanks in advance for any advice.
