M.2 and SSD Question

So I recently got a M.2 SAMSUNG 860 EVO (nvme) and I was wondering if it would cause gaming performance to decrease as opposed to an SSD. Should I put my OS on the M.2 and games on SSD or does it matter? I am really noob to M.2's

1) The M.2 860 evo is also an SSD.

 

2) The 860 evo is not NVME

 

3) There will be no performance difference if you put your games on a regular 2.5" ssd or an nvme SSD

Alright thanks, I think on the box it says V-nand and I somehow got that confused with NVme

Yeah those are completely different things.

The M.2 860 evo is basically the same thing as a 2.5" sata SSD.

Doesn't matter where you put your games, just don't put them on an HDD.

No, it's fine.

Just make sure you only have one drive plugged in while installing windows.
