Wow, thank you. Would using a 2tb hard drive be worth it along with a 1tb ssd? Additionally, the power supply I have listed is one I have, would an upgrade be warranted or no?
 
If you need the additional storage then by all means get the seagate. You know your storage needs better than I do. You can add a HD at any time to the system so you can skip it now if you want. If you already have the PSU and it's in good working order then continue using it. If it's out of warranty you could consider upgrading to a higher quality unit but that's up to you.
Here's a few good options for better power supplies-
Quality 550W PSU's

My current power supply is about 2 years old, would an upgrade be necessary at that point? I'm trying to save as much as possible.

EVGA warrants the parts for 3 years and labor for 2 years. It's not a very good PSU to begin with. Any decent PSU is warrantied for 5+ years. The ones I listed are warrantied from 7-10 years and are not that expensive. Since you're not far from the end of warranty you should consider upgrading to higher quality. A better PSU will protect your other components while delivering clean power to the system.
