I have a question about the configuration of my drives with the Mac Pro Raid Card (2009). I currently have bay 1 as my system drive and bays 2-4 as Raid 0 (yes I back up constantly).

In disc utility I see both the system drive and the "raid" as separate "drives" but I am wondering if by using the raid card I am actually imitating a config like having just one drive for apps and media because it's all coming thru the card??

I edit DVC PRO HD 720 24p and the puter can really get boggy which made me consider this as a possible bad config.

I am considering trying the system drive in an optical bay. Does anyone have an opinion on this?

It sure seems like my system is very "boggy" but I really have no benchmark - except my old Media 100 system ran a lot smoother back in the day....

2009 Mac Pro Octo 2.93
