Hey Guys, you came to the rescue with my recent RAID issues, but now that it is sorted out, and i have all of the hardware in place, i need to get the software playing nice. Here are the specs: 3.33ghz 6 core mac pro 10 gb ram several 7200 1-2 tb hard drives 4 drive raid 0 SSD array radeon 5770 CS4 Basically i work with large format, large size, multilayer photoshop and illustrator files (wall art, posters etc). I am running into performance issues when using brushes (takes several seconds to complete a stroke to catch up with cursor) and general file IO is slow. I am looking for suggestions on how best to set up this system (scratch disks, memory allocations, plugins software tweaks) in order to achieve the best performance. After doing my research on hardware, i feel as if i have all of the pieces in place, but i just need to know how to set the software in order to take advantage of it. Thanks in advance!
