Is there any advice on parts for my new computer. I'm hearing that it's better to go with 2 large striped drives rather then 4 drives to help cut down on drive error. Does that apply for Live Switching as well as Post. Is the SATA ports on the motherboards better or should I buy a add-on card for my raid-a-ray. Which CPU is better for live switching and post editing? I know a lot of people where talking about the Intel Q6600 Quad-Core, is that still the best chip out there are is that new Intel Core i7 been tested yet? Thank you n advance for any advice given. I'm trying to build this new machine A.S.A.P.
