Every additional element makes a system more unreliable.

Go with one 256 GB SSD for everything except your image files that should be on one SATA HDD. Use USB drives for backup. You don't need the graphics card. Get a Gold rated power supply to reduce cooling requirements. Intel i7 processor and 16 GB RAM are ample.

+1 for this recommendation and the reasoning behind it.

One other point that hasn't been made... each SSD will consume a SATA port and preferably a 6Gbps port. Your system will have a small and finite number of these and you don't want to fill them all up from the outset since that will restrict your future options when you need to add more bulk storage capacity for video or whatever.

Keep it simple. One large SSD plus appropriate HDD's for bulk storage.
