HD Video and audio editing computer setup question?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I sold my old computer to my brother-in-law who will be using for HD video and audio editing. My question is Adobe Premier says that it recommends raid 0 if you will be doing un-compressed video (which he will be) my question is what would be the best way for me to set it up for him? Currently it only has 2x80GB and 1x320GB hard drives. So would i want to put the OS on the 2x80's in raid 0? or do I want the OS on the 320 and leave the 80's in raid for editing? Hopefully someone understands what I'm talking about and can help me because when it comes to this department, I know nothing. -_-

Looks like your only option without spending more money is to raid 0 the 80gb drives and have the 320 as OS and storage.

i'd recommend buying a 64-80gb SSD when they're on sale for OS+Adobe Premiere and using the 80gb raid 0 as a scratch disk and the 320gb as storage.

Thanks for the input. Yea I know spending more money on a few more drives would be ideal, but that would be up to him. Which he may or may not know already so ill pass the news regardless. Who knows maybe he already has another hard drive or two that he's going to throw in there that I don't know of.
