Hello all, I continue to see advice and articles for building Gaming PC's, whether it be a Budget Box or an Extreme Box. But, I never get to read online on building a box for Web Development or Graphic Design or Best Productivity, Etc. I am a multimedia developer with the jist of my work being in web development and graphic design. I often use several memory hungry programs for 8 - 12 hours a day and currently it slows my PC way down. My Graphic Design Programs and Java Based Programs take a minute or more to load.
I was thinking two 640GB Caviar Blacks Raid 0 and a 1TB Caviar Black with an external sata HDD Case. I have a lot of music and a great deal of movies as well. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
