Bjorn 3D take a look at the Seagate Cheetah NS.2 HDs & LSI 3ware SAS 9750-4i RAID Card, a high performance storage setup:

Seagate is well known for their popular Barracuda line-up of SATA hard drives that provide optimal performance for pretty much any task you are looking for. However, if you are into hard drive intensive tasks like high-definition video editing and compositing, standard SATA hard drives could be a big bottleneck in your system. I personally work with lots of high-definition 1080p uncompressed video footage, and my two Western Digital RAID Edition 1TB hard drives in a RAID 0 configuration were not able to handle uncompressed HD footage without any lags. You might wonder, well what type of performance does an uncompressed HD footage require from a hard drive? Well, to answer that, it really depends on file formats and the amount of complexity of the scene, but usually, it is in between 100-300MB/s transfer/read speed. Since two standard 7200RPM 3.0Gb/s SATA II hard drives can only handle around 115-200MB/s in average, a person could easily see performance decreases in their production, especially when combining more than one uncompressed footage in their composition.
