256GB vs 512GB SSD for 2017 iMac 27

iMac - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
I'm looking at replacing my custom built PC with a new 27" 5k iMac. It will be used mostly for photo editing, as well as general use and some light games (Diablo, World of Warcraft etc.).

The base model should do me fine but I definitely want to go to an SSD drive so I'll be doing a custom build.

I'll have a 2 bay, 6+6Tb unit which can store completed projects, movie files etc. I just need to consider the space for the OS, Applications, Documents, Music and current working projects.

I feel the best solution is to go for the 256Gb drive in the iMac and an external Samsung T5 1Tb drive for my current working projects. It would practically cost the same as going for the 512Gb drive in the iMac.

The question is: will the 256gb drive suffice for the OS, Applications and music files etc.? I plan on keeping this thing for a handful of years.
