I am building the ultimate Photoshop CS6 PC desktop for my client. They want to have it last for 4 years and be ready for the Adobe CSx upgrades and Windows 8. No overclocking, no gaming, very little video editing.
The (4) 3Tb drive will be run in Raid 5 and the (2) 1Tb drives will be run in Raid 1. I want all drives to run with 6Gb through put.
The problem that I can’t overcome is that I am told that the Adaptec controller card won’t run on either motherboard, partly because of uFEI and the X79 chipset.
