My own system
I find the advantages so compelling for my own photography work that I am in the process of migrating my own MPG Pro Workstation system to a new configuration using the OWC Mercury Accelsior, plunking down my own cash to do so.
My targeted config is one 960GB card for my Master working volume, and one 480GB card for my Scratch working space (huge PSD/PSB/TIF files for my photography).
