Smile External Hard Drive & Libraries?

Hi folks, I was just wondering if the following would be a good way to set up my mac for music production use...

Basically have my iMac drive for nothing but the Applications and Project Files. Have an external drive for my library sample files.
Then another drive for and Auto Backup (through Time Machine)?

Or does anyone have better set up suggestions?

I read somewhere it's always better to have library files on a different drive as a drive cannot Read and Write at the same time, so it's faster to have the Project I'm working on located on a different drive than that from which the samples are being loaded from?

If so any suggestions as to good reliable external drives also?
