I have the photoshop swap file on one drive, the windows swap file on
another drive, 4GB of ram and all my drives are 10,000 RPM. With this
setup I can scan using vuescan and edit a SINGLE medium format scan
using photoshop at the same time. Editing more than one scan at the same
time gives quite a slow down...
Hard drive speed for editing certainly matters.
