Hi again, so after being disapointed with the octcore performance in HDV and DV editng i just bought my quad 2.66. I orderd it with the x1900xt 1 Gb f Ram and a 250 Gb drive. Then from newegg i orderd 4 500gb Seagate 7200.10 hardrives, and 1 Licie 2Tb exsternal drive for backups. From dell i orderd 2 24inch monitores, and i orderd 4Gb worth of ram from my previous forums recomended brand. When it arives on monday im configoring it with a HD cage in the second disk drive bay for the 250Gb boot drive and routing a sata cable to it. Then all the 500Gb drives will go into the rack and will be raided into a raid 0. Then to back up the raid the Exsternal drive will be scredualed for back up 2 a day.
