Hey there! I wanted to know, if I add a TB HDD to my setup, will it effect my performance in terms of boot time, application opening, overall speed? Here is my build.

No, just store your os and the apps you want to speed up on the SSD and they'll load just as fast as before, and put your documents on the HDD.

As long as you keep the SSD on top of the boot order it won't slow down the boot, and it will only slow down something inasmuch as it needs to access the HDD (if an application accesses things on the drive it will be slower, like itunes accessing music)
