I am trying to build a computer for photo editing.... Mainly Photoshop and Lightroom. And need some help.

I was thinking getting 4 Intel 40 GB X25V using 1 for the OS and then RAID 0 for remaining 3 scratch-disks. Would this work good or should I get larger SDDs and not raid them like the 80 GB X25 M????? I was hoping to spend 400-600 on SDDs

Any Suggestions would be appreciated??????

You do not want to use a ssd for a scratch disk.

An SSD as a scratch disk is fine. It will significantly speed up your performance too. Rather than get the 4 40GB models though, why not just get a single 160 or a pair of 80s?
