The system that I am working on, the one in my specs, is basically a supercharged lightroom station. I have one 128gb Vertex 3 that is just a lightroom cache drive. The big HDD is for the actual raw files and they need to be on a fast drive or it slows down the entire workflow. The 3tb 7200rpm Deskstar is kinda the perfect drive. Its too bad I can't find it in stock anywhere. BTW, I will get a 5400 rpm drive to backup the faster drive to, then keep that offsite.
