I am having problems with my current system not performing up to speed when using my video editing program. I have since been looking for parts to create a new build, my first. Since it's my first, I am looking for a critique on some parts and also need advice on whether I need to go with a Raid or multiple hard drives for best performance.
Note: System will be used primarily for video editing and possibly moderate gaming.
I hope to install Adobe Premier Pro and After Effects.
I have selected the I7 2600K/Gigabit GAP67AUD4B3/WD Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB (still looking for the vid card) Do you think these parts will be able to run Premier Pro and After Effects smoothly?
I am quite sure I am going to need more than one hard drive for performance and speed, but am having a spot of difficulty with what configuration I should go with.
What is the best way to be able to run these intensive programs, transcode-edit-render to 720X480 Standard Def without getting the choppiness and frame dropping I am experiencing with my current system. (I only have 1 "green" hard drive now)
Is it better to go with multiple hard drives and partition them?
Is it better to go with a Raid0 set up?
Please advise, thanks
