    I recently got a new mac pro. I mainly use photoshop cs3. I need 3 hard drives. Below I listed the hard drives I need along with the drives I am currently considering. Please let me know if there are better options that I should be looking at.

    1. Boot Drive (opperating system and applications)
    I want a 500gb boot drive...is there one that is faster/better?
    Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - $104.99

    2. Working Drive (photography files)
    Is there a 750gb or 1tb drive that would be cheaper and/or better for this?
    SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD753LJ 750GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - $139.99

    3. Scratch Drive (for photoshop scratch)
    I want a small, dedicated drive for photoshop scratch...is there a better/faster or smaller/cheaper drive that would be good for that?
    Western Digital Caviar RE WD1600YS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - $59.99

    Thanks in advance:)

    Where are you buying them from? Try newegg.com

    They have great things for really low prices! But it seems alright with the HDs.
