I do have a 1 to 2 TB drive specified for the photography files. The 500 GB drive is much more than I need for other files (I currently have a 120 GB drive barely half full).

Best to not use the 120gb drive in your computer. save it for a usb backup and you could also do that with the 500gb as it sounds like you don't need all the space. more drives equals more failures. Which is why I suggest 1 SSD and 1 big HDD. You can get usb drives that allow you to change the internal drives over and create backups of important files.

As for scratch drive. It is a bit of a throw back. 64bit OS and high RAM will deal with most of it. If 8gb can't because you have super large files then 16gb should be plenty and then some. RAM is cheaper and faster.
So you need to know if you are running 32 or 64 bit as CS4 and 5 can do away with scratching on 64bit.
