I recently had this system built and it performs flawlessly. Dual core is a must for editing if you can afford it. I regret not speccing 'safe' raid for the media drives but swapping a zillion gigs of media about now would be a pain so I aint going to do it. The caddy is great, having off line backups keeps the paranoia at bay, some stuff is even backed up twice on different drives. Also note other esssentials for me, coffee, fags, very comfy chair.
