Gents,

I am looking for the best SATA HD or combination of, to use with VI and my old reliable 2.o Ghz dual processor Mac. I am consistently getting Western Digital's Raptor with a 150 GB of space, 10,000 RPM and 16MB Cache. They also make a SATA II, 250 GB, 7,500 RPM HD which also has a 16MB Cache. Does it make a diffference which one I go with in terms of perfromance? Will any one of you co-sign this sort of setup.

1. SATA PCI card 8 inputs
2. 4-Bay SATA Enclosure (That's four 150 GB SATA HD, 10,000 RPM)

All connected to a Power Mac G5 2.0 Ghz Dual processor
Logic Pro 7.2.3
Mac Pro 3.3 Quad-Core Processor, 12GB RAM
Mac Pro 3.0 Dual-Core, 8GB RAM
