Alright, I'm ready for your input, after researching for a month on getting a mac pro. I will be using the Mac Pro for web design and graphic/video editing. My main tools will be CS4, Flex, and FCS2. Here is the configuration I'm looking to buy: Mac Pro Dual Quad 2.8GHz 10GB RAM (4x2GB OWC + 2x1GB stock) ATi HD 3870 (possibly w/Arctic S1 Rev2 Cooler if too loud) ACD 23" + 30" Storage 2.62GB on board + 4GB Drobo FW800 as follows: -On Board Mac Pro: --300GB VelociRaptor (as boot drive) that SuperDupers/Time Machines to 320GB stock drive --2x1TB WD Black Caviar in Raid 0 -External Raid (for back up) --4GB (Seagate 4x1TB Barracuda Sata 7200 Rpm 32MB) --Drobo gen-2 FW800 (4TB in Drobo = 2.7TB real capacity) What do you guys think about this config? The questions in the back of my mind still are: 1. Use 2x640GB WD SE16 in Raid 0 as boot drive, but how would that compare to VelociRaptor in performance as boot drive? Is it a good idea to use Raid 0 for boot disk? 2. For back up, avoid Drobo, instead do 2x1TB Raid 0 in external enclosure with eSATA II/FW800 for SuperDuper? 3. Instead of ACD's, go for 2xLaCie 324 (10bit PVA) that comes with dual HDMI? 4. Still wondering if 10GB RAM is just the right amount? Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
