What do you think about these specs? Should I purchase a WD 150GB Raptor 10,000rpm HD instead of the Seagate 1.5TB 7200rpm HD? Is increase in speed worth the massive reduction in capacity?
I will be running Avid Media Composer on 64-bit Vista,but I am considering dual-booting w/ OSX(osx86). I was going to buy a Quadro video card(Avid says one is required),but I found a way to use a regular GeForce so that saved me some cash. I will probably spend the extra money on another 6GB of memory.
