    I am excitingly awaiting the new Mac Pro. I do a lot of digital photography/ editing.

    How should I set up my hard drives for best performance. I will backup data only to a large 4th drive in the enclosure, or externally. Where should I instruct timemachine to backup?

    Should I use Raid 0, or have my 2nd drive loaded with CS3 and other applications? Where would I install windows for Bootcamp? Scratch disk?

    Lots of questions, can't wait to join the apple team!

    Thanks for your help!

    I am interested in this too, i just dont quite understand the RAID concept. The performance boost sounds nice though.

    Anyone got some info?
