    I have a friend who has 2 SCSI 320GB drives he could give me for a cheap price. I was wondering if I can install them in my Mac Pro(1,1)2006 model. If so how would I go about doing this and what would I need. I do video editing so I was thinking about installing them as a RAID 0 array. Thanks.

    Also would even be worth it do this. I understand there are some 10000 RPM SATA options out there that might match the speed of SCSI drives.

    Unless you find a used one, a SCSI card will run you $300-$400. A couple of 300GB 10000RPM SATA drives will be about the same. In a striped array the speed advantage of SCSI (if any) will be minimal.

    Using the SCSI drives is just not worth it IMO.
