I'm not clear on what you are asking exactly. Do you want an opinion on the system?

If so, I suggest that one new i7 chip would be a much better investment than the older Dual Xeons, at least for Vegas.

You would do better to go with newer technology than the older.

That particlular Xeon (the 5472) was, from what I've read, not that much better in general terms than the standard Quad Core chips.

If your friend gave it to you, then you got a great deal! Wow!

Are you saying you got it for free?

Sounds great, especially the SAS drives, excellent!

Marcus, I understand.

First, you do not need to partition anything.

Use 1st hard drive for Windows

and use your other discs as storage or video drives.

It depends on your workflow also. You need to have a workflow in mind before deciding how to use your drives.

The main thing is one drive for windows, one drive for video, and one for backup. I'm not familiar with RAID 5, so I don't know what how you might use it.
