Trouble is cost of the Mac Pro plus a screen and 2 extra HDD is much moolah! So no cash for more RAM. Also, I want to set things up properly from the outset and I won't need the RAM initially but do need more HDD space. I'm going to be looking to do much more photography paid work and i need a faster system than I have at present as time will not just be money, I won't have much of it anyway as I will keep my normal job and want to keep up on the tenor.Ian
My advisers (professional PC builders) say that the best bet is Western Digital from e-Bay. They also muttered something about why you hadn't gone for more RAM straightaway, SSD (for PS scratch?) and you should keep the number of partitions to a minimum for stability especially if they are RAIDed. Is it like that because the Mac only has space for four hard drives?
I know nothing, just passing on advice!
Fair point but I don't think it will be a problem as the BU will be, and must be on one drive. Problem for me is I am not very experienced in this area but I read a book! Well several web articles but I know a lot of peeps swear by this approach. So I am taking this on faith!Is it worth the risk of raid zero for main file storage?
