New PC

Hi!
I am actually preparing a new computer for editing. The goal is to edit footage from Sony PD170 (DV) with adobe première pro V7.0, XPpro SP3.

Considering that I live in Turkey and access to all parts is hardly possible I designed the following:
asus P5Q3 Deluxe
Intel Q9550 QUAD CORE 2,83Ghz
CORSAIR 2 GB (2X1) KIT 1600MHZ DDR3 CL9 DHX RAM
Graphic card Asus HD3870 512MB 256BIT GDDR4
WD 250 Go16MB SATA2 7200RPM for Windows XP pro
WD 750GB 16MB SATA2 7200RPM for Premiere pro
2 X 750GB 16MB SATA2 7200RPM for capture
Thermatalk VA7000BWA SHARK ALUMINYUM FULL TOWER
650 WATT TOUGHPOWER QFAN
2 lcd monitors ACER AL1916WDs 19" 5ms WIDE SCREEN

I have several questions.

-What do you think about the all set? I don’t intend to play with this computer only edit plus some Internet and openOffice work.
-Is it interesting to have 3 sets of hard drive (1 for Windows, 1 for Première, 1 for capture)?
-In order to boost the PC where should I set a Raid 0 (C:/, D:/ or E:/)?
-a maxtor rt xl Le is not yet on my budjet. And the improvement for dvd format doesn't seem to be that important! So for the moment I will use (as I did with my old P4) use the firewire.

Thanks for the future answers.

It's a good for DV.

You don's need an a full disk for Premiere Installation, this goes on the same drive you install windows. The C: drive is used for system by defualt and the RAID will take whatever letter is available. U may use that extra disk to store files from photoshop, office, back up, etc.

Thanks for the answer.
What would be more efficient. Raid 0 on drive C: (system plus apps) or on drive D: (capture).

Hi

It is not recomended to use a raid for system (unless mirrored), a 10k rpm drive would be better (if it is in budget), but a single 7200 sataII is good enough.

A raid 1 for capture (DSmile will give u the best performance for editing (using raid 5 or 10 is optional, is more expensive, but u have a backup in case a disk fails).

I'm confused! How would raid 1 give me best performance for editing?
Don't you mean better security?
Velociraptor on drive system would be great! But probably not in budget.

Last but not least. Would this system be enough the day (1 or two years) I want to migrateto Vista 64 (when most program will have taken advantage of 64bits).
Thanks.

Yes, i meant Raid 0 in previous post.

Raptor is great disk, but way too expensive!

The configuration is good for 64 bis, just add 2 more GB of ram when upgrading to vista or raplace the memory to have 8 gb.

I would setup the drives as:

WD 250 Go16MB SATA2 7200RPM for Windows XP pro
WD 750GB 16MB SATA2 7200RPM for My Documents (Photos, Office, Downloads)
2 X 1TB 32MB SATA2 7200RPM for capture
