Planning Suggestion for SharePoint 2013

Overview:  It is always a good idea to have an exact breakdown of your SharePoint achitecture. I do this using a diagram and a corresponding spreadsheet.  This post has an example of the spreadsheet, I have a tab for each DTAP environment before I build it out.

Note: Window "Page File" or "Paging File" is a contentious issue, depending on the recovery.  So the dump logs go to 1 of the drives and I normally make sure they go to the c drive that is over provisioned for the is size.  I don't really know how important this is but I always estimate on the c drive for at least 2 times the maximum ram for my calculations.
