As Lukasz said,
The best suggestion is to be aware of what the options do and how the review cursor works, and then you will work out the best set of options for you.
Here is the User Guide section on navigating, which includes the review cursor: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#NavigatingWithNVDA
Here is the section on the review cursor settings: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#ReviewCursorSettings
Now, if you aren't familiar with the review cursor, or how it works, I would strongly suggest that the Basic Training for NVDA guide, although not free, is worth it for the sections on the Review Cursor and Object Navigation alone: https://www.nvaccess.org/product/basic-training-for-nvda-ebook/
Basically though, those three options will set whether the review cursor follows:
System Focus: This includes things like the current ribbon option when navigating the ribbon in Word or File Manager, the current menu item in the start menu, the button or checkbox on a web page, the options in the NVDA settings dialog etc.
System Caret: The text cursor anytime you are somewhere editing text such as an email, Word document or web form. (In this way, you can think of the System Focus as whatever NVDA is currently on any time you are NOT in an edit field).
Mouse cursor: This will follow the mouse around - this is mostly useful (but possibly very much so) if you have some sight and use the mouse.
