I might wait to get a new SSD to put some games (Skyrim, Oblivion, Morrowind (does that really need to be on a SSD?), among others (?) to improve load times, but I'd think some suggestions could be helpful.
My current specs:

Video Card: PowerColor Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card

As I know I'm going to get asked:
- Why have a 2 & 3 TB?
- Why have two DVD drives?
The 3 TB is primarily for my games (steam, origin, gog, uplay, retail, or misc ((G)Zdoom, pinball, Diablo 1 "HD" (fan-made), etc)). You can probably guess what my 2 TB is for (downloads, picture, music, small partition or two for Linux)
DVD players so I can still install (and install quicker) some retail games (Diablo 2, The Sims 1/2
I may at some point get a second SSD for (far) faster load times. I wouldn't want to use the "OS" SSD as that would probably wipe out any games and mods on that drive (if I have to format)
