I wouldn't recommend SSDs for footage drives with the prices still this high, but striped RAID might speed up your throughput a bit. Also, i'm not sure about Vegas, but AE enjoys having large amounts of RAM to work with. I did something in what amounts to twice the resolution of 8K a while back and it needed 4GB to even load a frame at 1/8 quality.
Post your system's specs if you don't mind.

Not to derail the conversation, but I do have to set the record straight (I know where you heard this). Out of hundreds of UTVideo-encoded clips (clips, full episodes, and full movies of varying resolution) which I have imported into and used in Vegas, only a single short clip caused any problems for me. I would recommend UTVideo for editing over Lagarith for speed reasons and over HuffYUV for compatibility reasons (there are multiple formats of HuffYUV which can not be used interchangeably without issues). That said, for some reason I can not get Vegas 10 (Movie Studio Platinum) to render out to UTVideo, so I use Lagarith for making final masters; editing speed does not matter at that point anyway.
I second everything Pwolf said about not using Xvid for editing. What a mess.
Back on topic:
Is there anyone with a method for 1080 editing that is different from variations of bait-and-switch?
