I really could use some advice here as to waht to buy to build a M100 HDe system.

If I buy a Mac G5 quad, what type of external drives would I need. Curently I edit on Beta SP and DV, with the hope of editing on HD in the future. But for now let's say Beta SP.

Would G-Raid drives work for me?

What else would I need to buy as far as any sata cards or ATTO? How much RAM would I need?

Thanks for all of your help. This is getting exciting!

The fastest and cheapest drives are to buy a FirmTek enclosure and board for about $400. You can add four 500gig SATA-II drives to each bay and it is removable storage. The data transfer rate is the FASTEST RATE that can be obtained--it literally blows away every other system on the market--I tested them all... and the whole thing will cost you only $1,000 for 2,000 GIGS. Don't buy those those over priced RAID systems because their data transfer rates can't even come close to this sytem.
