Should I swap SSD, have two internal drives, or one internal and one external?

Level 8

I recently got an Asus ROG Flow X16 and it came with a 2TB NVMe KINGSTON SNV2S2000G SSD drive.

I recently picked up another 2TB drive. A Crucial P3 Plus PCIe 4.0 NVMe 2280 M.2 SSD.

I was originally planning to put the new drive in an Asus ROG Strix Arion M.2 NVMe SSD enclosure that I'm having delivered Saturday.

 Looking it up it looks like the Kingston SSD that came with my system is actually slower than the one I just bought (Crucial SSD).

What are opinions? Should I mirror, and swap in the new drive in place of the system provided drive? Should I run two internal drives in the system, or should I use one internal, and make the other an external in the ROG Strix Arion?

I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Thanks in advance!
