Optimal configuration for video editing with SSD drives?
 
I've been wondering if there is a way to optimize performance for my video editing (Using Adobe Production Premium CS5.5) with the drives that i have. My configuration is as follows:

120GB Intel 520: OS W7 + PP CS5.5
128GB Kingston V200: Current Working Projects (All the video files + extras)
2TB + 1TB WD Black: Storage Backup
60GB OCZ V2 is extra: Currently empty, just got it in the mail from RMA.

So Would i see any speed difference while working off one drive with my CS5.5 and my videos? Or does the program suffer having to look on another drive?

Thanks in advance,
Cheers!

Keep the program installed on the 520, raw files on the 128GB V200, and render to the vertex 2.

Thanks for a prompt reply! I will try that now! Perhaps do some timing tests, of rendering same 5min file to see whats the speed difference!

Cheers!

I just ran the rendering tests, the file is just under 5min, running 2 rendering loops, here are the timing results:

Rendering to:
OCZ60GB - 4:15sec
Kingston 128GB - 4:04sec
Intel 520 120GB: 4:17sec

Interesting, considering the kingston drive is the slowest of the three. I guess its just a matter of a few seconds but perhaps the locations of the raw files is important.

I would love to raid, but OCZ V2 was my 1st ssd, then i got the kingston when OCZ was in RMA, and found an amazing deal on Intel 520. But 520 is the best and most reliable i hear, so hopefully i can get another for raid.
