Well, as I sit and type this, I can hear one of my hard drives making a not so friendly clicking noise... have no fear, I am backed up and ready for a brick at any moment. I've decided not to mess around and just going to refresh my drives (all of them). Which leads me to my question... I have a MacPro (early 2008) with 8GB of ram. My current HD setup is this: First Drive: 500gb Western Digital (boot disk) Second Drive: 500gb Seagate (used for FCP and Photoshop scratch) Third: 160gb Western Digital (Boot camp disk) I know I have a slow setup, and was hoping to coordinate the hard drive upgrades when snow leopard was released... but can't wait for that now. So, I'm looking for a more optimized, FAST, setup... Given that I you FCP and PS as my main apps, what specific drives would you recommend and in what configuration (raid?).... again, looking for best balance between performance and reliability. Thanks in advance for the help!
