So I've got an SSD that I use for my OS and a 1TB drive for data and games the issue is the drive itself is a slow speed.

Almost all my games have no issues but some do.

PUBG
H1Z1
Tekken 7 load screens

These are notable games that seem to have issues running from my current drive. I'm looking for recommendations for a 3rd drive that I will add for gaming so I can switch to a setup like this.

SSD - OS
HDD (Slow) - Files, Music
? (Fast) - Games only

1TB would work really well for the size.

This is one that I'm looking at

I'd prefer if the drives we're laptop size ones and not full-size desktop ones if possible unless that's what hurts performance.

I mean like it seems like a good HDD but if those are the 3 main games effected you could buy like a 120gb-240gb ssd (or higher) and store some of the games you want improvement on. But its an all around good drive.

Sounds like you might have a 5400RPM HDD currently. That Seagate Barracuda is 3.5", so a full-size desktop HDD. It's gonna cost a bit more for a smaller HDD with the same capacity and comparable speed. Seagate Barracuda is what I'd suggest.

Also, move games you play often to the SSD if you can.

If you transfer PUBG from your HDD to your SSD that should fix your buildings not loading because it kept happening to me and I fixed it that way.
