Uncompressed HPX-170

What is the best method for getting uncompressed data from the HPX-170? I know it's got the HD-SDI that outputs uncompressed, but would I need to bring along a RAID 0 striped PC to get the data?

Actually I thought about it a bit more, would this work:

HPX-170 connected to a PC with a Blackmagic DeckLink Studio card via the HD-SDI connector and recorded straight into Adobe Premiere CS4 on a 3tb RAID 0 SATA II array? My HTPC gets 100-150mb/sec write speeds with Seagate 7200.11s in RAID 1 and if my math is correct uncompressed 1080p/30fps is 90mb/sec, so factor in that RAID 0 is a little bit faster then a RAID 1 array, I should be fine right?

The only downside with this is I'd need power to run the pc anywhere I shot, but I'm sure I could figure that out.
