It depends on how large the games are that you play. If we're talking just indie games, even a tiny 60 GB SSD will do great.

 

However, if we're talking AAA titles that flood your system with data (DOOM, GTA V, Forza Horizon 4, etc.), then I recommend at least a 120GB SSD.

I play ark survival evolved, rust, scum, call of duty black ops 4, and most of the rts games like command and conquer and ashes of singularity

@MadPistol with that being said say I want to speed up both my gaming drive and my os drive can I cache both with say one 500 GB ssd or would you just recommend just doing a data migration onto a new ssd for my os?

If you don't have your OS on an SSD, that should absolutely be the first upgarde you do. You will see a bigger improvement overall from that then having your game's cached.

OS should be on an SSD. That will make the biggest difference in terms of "feel" and responsiveness on a computer.

If you would like to have a cache on the other drives, that's completely fine. As for the OS drive, if it's on an SSD, I suggest leaving it alone and not adding a cache to it.
