770 with larger ssd or 780 with smaller ssd?

Hey guys, I'll be upgrading my PC this week. Maxing new games would be nice, but the major focus of my computer upgrade will be video editing, mainly the Adobe CS6 Production Suite. For my budget, I'm told my two options are:

1. GTX 770 4 GB with a 240 GB SSD that will hold Windows, all my editing programs, and the games I'm currently playing
2. GTX 780 3 GB with a 64 GB SSD that to my understanding will most likely only be able to hold Windows for about $30 more than the previous option.

So I'm wondering if anyone could offer some advice on which is the better option. My knowledge of how this stuff works is very limited, but my friend who is setting this up said those are my best options.

Whatever you end up choosing don't get a 4gb 770. That's just throwing away $50, it offers 0 performance increase even at higher resolutions and in SLI. It just doesn't have the memory bus to properly utilize that much ram.

get a small SSD and a 780. As long as it's enough to hold your OS and a game or 2 it will hold you over until you can buy another ssd dedicated entirely to games.

If it's mainly for video editing then get a larger SSD with a weaker graphics card so you can put some of your projects on the SSD.

No SSD is ideal for video editing, they're just not large enough without paying out your ass.

How big are video projects usually? Larger than 150GB?

Yeah, definitely. Back in SD it would be great, but now with HD and depending on compression, 1 GB could be a minute of HD video.
