Your mechanical drives will be long dead and replaced at least once or twice
before you ever wear out a modern SSD (assuming the SSD doesn't hold recordings).
Most important thing to do: ensure each partition on the SSD is aligned to
an even power of two. Eg. partition-1 should start at sector 64,
rather than the (old) default of sector 63.
And no need to bother with a separate /boot partition.
