    Need help setting up MacPro hard disk config

    Got a new MacPro 2.8 (8core)

    Ok. im thinking i shouldn't have...but i bought the apple raid card. along with 4 500gb sata II hard drives. (1-from apple, 3-Seagates) Whats the best way to setup my hard drive config?

    Heres what I did (and i know i shoudnt have). But i made one big raid 5 volume. thats right...one volume. raid 5.

    Logic 8 ran quite poorly. i had a project with 6 audio tracks and no plugins etc......the spl jittered and played back poory from time to time. Im thinking this is because of the raid 5.

    So How should i setup my hard drives? (i use lots of instruments and sample libraries to doing post production work where its just audio) thanks.

    i have the same macpro and use the following configuration
    4x750 GB seagate
    1 for system,applications, songs and audiofiles
    1 for my sample library
    The other two are a mirrored software raid for timemachine.
    Sofar this seems to be the best compromise between capacity, speed and security i could get out of this computer.


    best
