  1. what programs will you be using? I'm using Premiere Pro CS3 and the rest of Production Premium. I used the Adobe guidelines when I built the system, save the SCSI disk array. It does not perform well with the 7200 rpm drive for video and I'm only using SD, not HD. So I guess going a bit over the top will prepare the system for the future (how much better can the technology get than HD?) but I was thinking of keeping the cost down and storage up with SATA drives instead of SCSI.
  2. Thanks---I think the throughput is right if I am understanding "Rick's HD Primer" chart correctly? http://library.creativecow.net/articles/ge...iere-pro-HD.php Frame Size Type Mbps GiB per hour 1920 x 1080 8-bit 4:2:2 24 fps 795 350 1920 x 1080 10-bit 4:2:2 24 fps 994 437 1920 x 1080 8-bit 4:2:2 30 i fps 994 437 1920 x 1080 10-bit 4:2:2 30 i fps 1243 546 Can you recommend a card and drives that you have had good luck with? Also a guide for building?
  3. 1200 Mb/s will probably be the max throughput I will need. I haven't pulled the trigger on the parts...3Ware 9500S-8 8 ports SATA 150 Raid Controller Card, It's PCI, will it work? I'm looking for optimum performance and reliability. Capacity is of secondary importance, I suppose.
  4. Hey Guys, Can I get some feedback about which RAID configuration to build for video editing? I am looking for reliability, but really don't know what I need. I have been recommended to use 8 drives for HD editing. If anyone has experience with this and it's working for you, please let me know.
