Video editing and 3d rendering

I am remodeling my recently built pc for video editing and 3d rendering.
I am running applications like Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects CS6. 3D app is C4d.
Now to my Setup:
Biostar 880G MB
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
16 GB Gskill Ripjaws 1333mhz
2- 500 gb WD Blue 7200 RPM in Raid
1- 3Tb WD Green for storage

Now my question is do I get a SSD for OS and Aps or do I buy a faster HDD.
I found a WD Velociraptor 500gb 10000rpm Drive for $80 and a Samsung 840 Pro 128gb SSD for $120.
Which one would be best?

Thanks in advance.

  1. I just watched a video on the intel site. How they compared the boot speed of a 10k drive and a 256bg ssd. The ssd did it in 1.12 sec the 10k drive did it in 2.12 there about. If you want to seek during editing in the timeline and I would think that the speed of a drive to render is relevant. The difference is the size of Ssd you are using. The ssd's bigger then 12gb DO perform better the bigger they get BTW.
    Now the big question is, will one of those 500gb 7200 rpm drives be fast enough, or handle the throughput flow for video.
    In other words, will the video throughput saturate a 7200 rpm drive to ssd? Or is there a bottleneck and if so? How much are we talking about? The difference between latency 9 and 10 of a 1600mhz or 1866 mhz ram? milliseconds X size= wait time.
  2. Yeah I am a newb to this and a hobbiest when it comes to video editing. The way I have it setup right now isnt bad, I just know that I can get more speed and I want it!!! As far as the 7200rpm drives Im not sure how much of a bottleneck that will be. I read a post on the Adobe Forums that said if you have your OS and Applications on a single drive and all of your data on another it will increase your speed dramatically.
    I want to know if that is true?! Also if i set the 2 7200rpm drives in Raid 0 that it will help with speed also but increase the chances of data loss.

    Not sure what to do?!?!?!
