Hi, new to forum & serious video editing on the mac. Am looking for advice I have a PC switcher, who up till now has been using DPS Velocity & has decided to switch over the Mac. The idea is to get Mac Pro 8 core (2.26/2.66/2.93??), run Final Cut Pro 7, and load 8GB of memory.
Would I need to go for a Raid array of internal disks, can anyone give me quick Raid for dummies how & why to use?
Or am i okay with 2 TB Hard Drives?
Or do I get the 2TB Hard Drives that i run on Raid, am a bit confused.
Also how do these video editing systems compare?
Given that DPS Velocity is probably 2 versions older than current version.
Thanks in advance for all feedbacks.

Well FCP is a pretty big application, The more power the better I would say,
Raid is very easy on a mac- Get all the drives you want then boot off you install disk and in about 3 steps have them raided.
I have bo idea about the velocity question, but FCP is very nice
