I'd go ssd for system drive which is where your vi's, etc will go. A second ssd for sample sets/libraries. And a spinner for PT to record to. The thing I would watch out for is to not overspend on interface protocol speed; IOW match the speed between the computer buss and drive. A faster throughput on the drive is a waste of money if the computer can't supply that speed.
