The actual program isn't going to use up that much. Having it on a SSD will start it up quicker. It is heavy on the processors not the drives.
The fact that RAM goes beyond only a few GBs now and if you want then have a drive to act as extra RAM but chances are it won't be used.

I heard that a SSD as scratch is a little faster compared to HDD but again. Not a big deal.

I think the lesson that has been learnt over and over with SSD is that as always it is best as the OS drive. Anything else is just going to cost too much.
