I am relatively new to the Mac world and have enjoyed every minute of my new G5. Mine is the entry level G5 1.6GHz, 1GB Ram, 80GB HD, nVidia 64MB graphics. I opted for the G5 over a dual G4 because of the newer design and am very happy with it. Here is the problem: I've only got 17GB free on the OEM 80GB drive. I have about 40GB of music and about 10GB of photos. I am going to purchase Photoshop CS soon and would like to increase my storage as well and increase performance a little too. Would I be better off buying two 7200 RPM 250GB drives and striping them or would I get better performance by buying a 74GB WD 10,000 RPM Raptor and a 250GB 7200 RPM drive for storage? I also plan on adding another gig of RAM soon (perhaps today if I buy the RAM off eBay). Thanks in advance.
