Hey guys, so I made the jump and laid down some fat (student loan) cash for a mac pro octo 2.8. I'm tricking it out with 16GBs trans intl. memory for max memory bandwidth and also bought two 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 drives to raid along with the 500GB that will come with it. I will mostly be using the Adobe Creative Suite and After Effects CS4 on this. The plan for the drives is a soft-RAID to use with OSXapple. With the 500 already installed I want to put Vista on for Windows only programs and the occasional game (since I know you can't use 2 OSes on a RAID). So my question is: Would it be better to leave the 500 in and use it as the main boot drive for and Vista OR move it to the 3rd slot and use as a secondary drive and install fresh on to the RAID? I have seen some of the benchmarks done on Barefeats.com which show that raided setups on Mac Pro really make no difference in boot time. Also, as a side note I am fully aware of the dangers of RAID and have an eSATA system already set for back up.
