Seek Disc Allocation / Time Machine advice

Hey hey kids...
While I await my new Mac Pro I'm wondering what the best strategy is for allocating disc space in regards to setting up Time Machine. The four drive bays will be occupied by the following drives: 1tb, 320gb, 320gb, and 160gb.
This is my home system and the only real work I'll be doing is in After Effects (I also use it for regular home stuff like iTunes, the web, email, Quicken, etc) . It seems like a waste to use that 1tb drive just for Time Machine backups, but I also haven't had great experiences in the past with partitioning. Perhaps things are different in Leopard, which I have yet to use.
So, the question boils down to this: how would you allocate these four drives? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
