Hey, I am looking for a littl advice on a build for my next computer. I have fallen out of touch with a lot of this. Basically I plan on getting a Dell Precision T7400 workstation. Processor will be one of the 45nm Quad-core Xeons (one to sart with, a second once Adobe steps up their game on using multi processors). I primarily run Premier pro 2 and PS CS2, also have the rest of the CS2 production studio premium. Processor and memory I think I have worked out. Question is storage.

There is room for 5 SATA drives (or 4 SAS), up to 1TB each.

Origianlly I was thinkning something like:
1 x 160GB 10K RPM for OS and apps
2 x 250GB in RAID 0 for scratch
0.5-1 TB in RAID 1 for storage

But then I wonder if I should go 2x 80GB 10K in RAID 0 for OS and Apps and maybe additional small fast drives in RAID 0 for scratch.

The larger storage in RAID 1 is a pretty obvious choice (although I do wonder if I should have these be external so they are not always on??)

Any opinions/experiences would be great.

Oh yeah, I am pretty set on using Dell (or similar) for time/reliability sake.
