WIth the almost imminent release of new Mac Pro's, and my need for a new desktop to replace my aged windows machine, I'm starting to look around and get things planned out. As this will be a multipurpose machine I need some hard drive suggestions. THe primary use for the machine will be for HD video capturing via a Blackmagic Intensity Pro card. I'm also planning on getting a Panasonic HMC-40 camera as well. I will also be running bootcamp as I need windows for gaming. I've read various opinions and others Hard drive set-ups, my though was as follows (based off the new machines having 4 HD bays, which obviously could be more if there's a design change): Drive 1: Standard shipped drive, MAC OS and Bootcamp partition. Drive 2: 1.5 T Seagate or WD- Personal audio, image, video files (possible final projects) Drive 3: 1.5 T Seagate or WD- Scratch, and maybe stock files(SFX and VFX files) Drive 4: 2 T Seagate or WD- Time Machine of essential files or just manual back of essentials. Now the big question is and I've seen mixed views, should I software Raid 2 of the drives for the scratch and stock stuff?? I do have various large space externals already so those could always be used as my back-ups. Any thoughts would be great, as I'm still a Mac newbie, and currently use FCP on a MBP so I'm not to up on its proper use with raids and multi drives, other then my externals.
