Which best: 1000HDD+128SSD or 512SSD? I will work with photoshop,programming (coding) and MAYBE will play the games:)

Well, I'd have said 256GB + 2TB

It should be both 512Gb SSD and 2TB.

Nariman: My current setup is 4 years old and perfectly adequate as I don't play Games, really just Surfing and MS Office, with a little work on Photos.

16GB RAM (not the fastest). Then, as a C Drive - 128GB SSD and as a D Drive - 1TB HDD, which is 7200 RPM, rather than 5400 RPM.

After 4 years, my C Drive, which is used for Software only, is just over half full, and my D Drive, about 35% full.

My first recommendation was based on my assessment that your Storage needs would be greater than mine. Hard Drives, of all kinds, tend to become tetchy when they reach about 80% capacity
