Should I go with dual SSD or SSD plus HDD

so I was stuck between going with 2 SSD or a hdd and a SSD. I was planning on going with dual 2tb SSD because I really don't need more than 4TB for as right now. I really just used it for games, premiere pro, and a little of video editing. If I went with a SSD and HDD I would go with a 2tb SSD plus a 4tb HDD.

Look, thats entirely up you you. If you want save money HDD is the way. If you want more quiet and responsive storage then SSD is the way.

What do you want more?
Speed or storage.

Also, you can always still add storage later. (inside or as external drive).

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

Is there any kind of data that doesn't benefit from being on an SSD? I'm thinking like photos, videos, music etc.?

You are correct, but its not the data that matters if should be SSD or not, its how you plan to use the data. ;)
(If i was for example photo editing i would preferably store all the photo's on an SSD).

I guess if you don't need more than 4TB (at least at this point), two SSDs would be a better option. You can always get an external HDD just for storage capacity.

depends on the price. if the ssds are really cheap and a good deal, go for 2x ssds. if not and the hdd is a great deal in comparison, go for 1x ssd 1x hdd.

personally id spend extra on the main ssd go for a single super fast m.2 like wd black or crucial p5 and use the leftover money for a high capacity hdd or cheaper ssd to use along with the main one
