    Hello,

    i am mainly looking for Speed, i want to set up a new boot drive to make appz like maya and Photoshop work faster, hard ware raid is to expensive, so i am thinking about:
    VelociRaptor
    or
    Software Raid WD Black or Barracuda® 7200.12

    Both will end up around the same price, what would you suggest!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    There are some topics in the Mac Pro forum discussing that, and of course: link .

    If you have the MP, seperate file and scratch drives are a lot faster for PS than a faster boot drive.
