Proxmox 3 node cluster, 2 with nvme 1 with sata ssd

I have older server with sata ssd(intel s3510) and Epyc 3rd gen server with intel p4510. I have a budget for another server(4th gen epyc with nvme ssd).

I'm planning to build 3 node with ceph. If I mix those 3, would they bottle-necked by sata ssd server?

I will run database intensive containers of two Epyc servers and sata server will be mostly idling(running low weight containers) and just be a part of quorum.

Is it good idea, or should I get another server with nvme ssds only? Thanks in advance.
