My guess is that having a single SSD will be perfectly sufficient, but if anyone here has compared single SSD vs a second SSD for cache/catalog/images, I'd like to hear your experience.

Not worth it, IMO.

With HDD's you really need want to spread the work over multiple spindles in order to overlap the very long seek and rotational latency times.

With SSD's, seek and latency are virtually eliminated.

Some folks have put multiple SSD's in RAID0. They can pull some impressive benchmark numbers but the impact on performance in practical scenarios is marginal.
