[filmscanners] RE: Re:Computer size(New Topic)

To carry disk performance to the max, go with a striped SCSI array of 15000
RPM drives! I use striped a 10000 RPM SCSI array for video
capture/NLE/rendering at work. The software chokes when I attempt projects
on one of the 7200 RPM internal (ATA) drives. This (striped array) works
fine for video work where we routinely handle files of 8GB and larger on a
puny system of 766MhZ and 256MB RAM. Of course, the machine has a Matrox
card that does most of the processing. For those unfamiliar with striping
(not to be confused with stripping), it uses logical drives made up of pairs
of identical physical drives, so it can read and write (roughly) twice as
fast. I first encountered striped arrays in Unix servers about a decade ago.

Make sure you have your scratch disks properly designed, keeping them
off the WIN temp or virtual memory partition, as they can cause
conflicts and disk thrashing.  Buy the fastest hard drive and interface
that you can (ATA 100 or 133 and 7200 to 10,000 rpm).  Hard drives are
dirt cheap now.  Make sure you have a partition that is clean and
defragged, and if possible, give Photoshop at least 2 gigs on it.
