After Windows 7 is released, I would like to buy a desktop with an i7 quad-core and 6GB of memory for video editing using Camtasia Studio. According to some experts, it is better to keep your video files on a Raid 0 configuration for faster transcoding.

If I configure two 500GB drives in raid 0 will it really be much faster than a single 1TB when transcoding a 4 to 5 minute video file in Camtasia Studio?

I don't think it will make that much of a difference, not for 5 min clips. It will work bit faster, but i hope you have a backup solution in mind.
