512 GB SDD or 256 GB SDD + 2TB HD for DESKTOP

I am to buy a Dell XPS desktop, the storage options are

512GB PCIe x4 SSD

or

256GB M.2 PCIe x4 SSD + 2TB 7200 rpm Hard Drive  dual drives

same price

I know the SSD is way faster. 512GB should be enough for Windows 10, Lr, PS, and some other application.

All my photos and videos will be on external harddrive.

So I lean towards 512 SSD ( or add $200 for a 1TB SSD).

What do you think?

thanks
