I quite agree with you: a powerful graphics card is wasted on Lightroom.

Better, I think, to spend money on a fast M.2 NVMe SSD for C drive, raw cache, catalog and previews. That can all be the same drive if it's big enough.

I agree. I had some gift cards and some credit card reward points accumulated and used and got me two 1TB M.2 fast SSD. Pretty much everything was doubled in this new system including the RAM and its speed.

I'm fine tuning the specs of a new custom build I'm having a local shop is doing for me. I am looking at 2TB of M.2. I've read somewhere that installing 2 units x 1TB each somehow creates a faster enviornment than 1 stick of 2TB. Is that why you installed 2 sticks instead of one?

Yes I installed two sticks but I'm not too familiar about that causing a faster environment. I did though, think that because the hardware I just purchased is double the speed of my previous system I did thought I was going to see this thing fly, but so far that hasn't been the case and that is something that I'm looking into at this moment and I think my new system is not optimized yet.

Two separate 1TB sticks hasn't impressed me that much at the moment when transferring hundreds of files from folders to folders.  But I will say that the import/export process is for sure a LOT faster than my previous i7-6700 and in task manager I do see that for certain things that I do the system uses the hard drive and RAM a lot.
