I'm planning on building a CustoMac and using my "old" hard drives as well as a new SSD. The machine will be for Photoshop Lightroom use mainly.

Is it possible to have the SSD as the OSX Boot Volume and then 2 x 1TB SATA drives in RAID0 and a further 1TB SATA drive for backups?

Could this work?
Thanks.

Absolutely yes. Just remember the RAID0 need to be software RAID set up from disk utility in OS X and you should have no problems.

Thanks for the fast reply. Is the Software RAID0 a fast and stable solution and am I likely to see close to double the bandwidth of a single disc?
