John has it about right and I would add that depending on what you’ll be working on, a specific drive wouldn’t drive for what you do wouldn’t hurt. For example, on our main editor we have;
1 OS/Program Drive
1 Graphics/Mographics Drive
1 DVD Authoring/Animation Drive
1 Raid 0 Video Editing Array (internal)
Anything extra like FX or Stock Footage storage we keep on external eSATA or Firewire Drives.
Why all the drives? Space and cache overflow resources. Nothing worse than working on a project and running out of cache space and having nowhere to put the overflow.
