Sincerest thanks for your reply.

I like to keep things that I don't know much about simple so i'll probably stick to the single SSD.

My thought on having the second SSD was to improve photo editing performance by having the LR/W8/PS cache on this second dedicated scratch disk. This strategy works for spindle disks and wasn't sure if any such gain is realized with SSDs. I certainly didn't plan on setting them up in any RAID.

I've read that some SSDs slow down after a year.

My plan would be to put recently downloaded RAW files on the the OS & apps SSD and then moving them over to the data HDDs after a week or so after I had finished working on them. I assume having them on the SSD would be faster for generating previews, seeing any adjustments i do moving sliders in LR, rendering RAWs, Is this the type of activity that leads to degradation of SSD performance?--
