finalizing setup on new system
on Dec 9, 2004 at 12:53:27 pm

Greetings all

after years away from NLE I finally decided to jump back in and build another system. Amazing how things have changed since I build a top-of-the-line PII 350 with EditBay (been a videoguys vip member since 1997) and Promise fastrack raid.

Anyway my question is about the right configuration to go with. I have a 160GB seagate ATA and a 200GB Seagate SATA drive. I was wondering if I should go with SATA for a system drive and just put the ATA drive in another system I was going to sell.

Will the 7200 sata HDD work with no dropped frames even with analog capture on my ACDVio card? I've done quite a bit of reading but am still confused on this manner. I have no problems buying another drive, as the sata was originally going to be the capture drive. Will the performance be inproved as a system drive and what drives will give me the most bang for my buck? Also my PERLK intel board has raid but I'm a little hesitant about setting that up if a single drive can do the trick.

While I'm at it, what software do you recommend to go with the ACDVio card? I'm torn between Vegas, Liquid Video. I had looked at Let's Edit and am unsure if it's too basic. I used the software which came with my EditBay when I last edited.

Use will be editing PAL/NTSC home movies and possible projects for work, then burn to DVD.

A local producer said don't buy Avid since the vegas is so much user friendly. He said it always locked up on them.

Thanks for any advice.

Since I didn't get a response I decided to go with the SATA for the system disk and now need another drive for video. I'm thinking a 250-300GB SATA 7200. Is it really worth the money to get a smaller-sized raptor SATA 10,000 or equivilent?

What video drive do you recommend for this setup and what software do you recommend?

I have a similar configuration and I actually have a Raptor 36.7GB SATA 10kRPM drive as my OS drive and have found it to be quite fast - and with it being smaller in space it forces me to keep all the extras on other drive, which in my opinion increases overall performance.
