Storing photos on separate ssds?

I'm using Lightroom and would like to store my photos on two separate ssds for a PC I am constructing. I will have one large catalog, necessary because I often search by keyword through all my photos. I currently have a 500gb SSD and a 1 terabyte SSD which together could hold all my photos comfortably and I'd rather not buy a new SSD or hard disk to store all the photos on one drive. Is there any problem with having photos stored on two different drives but contained within the same catalog?

The new computer will have an nvme Drive where I will store my operating system and catalog and room enough for the two ssds to be installed for the photos. The new computer is all about speed so I just want to make sure that this won't slow me down, for example when generating previews for photos pursuant to a keyword search in the catalog.

Thanks.
