Optane with HDD or SSD with HDD

I'm new to this whole computer thing so excuse me if something does not make sense but I have been doing a lot of research. I can't seem to find an answer to one question if an answer even exists. Is it better to have a hard drive with Intel Optane or a like NVME or to have an an SSD as the boot drive and hdd as the data drive? Hypothetically, would it work if I had the HDD with an NVME as a data drive and the SSD as a primary?

    The cost of Optane, is not currently worth it IMO. $80 for 32GB of cache. Add that $80 to the cost of the 250GB SSD you were going to buy and double the space.
