    If you're wanting to use this for gaming, throughput will definitely be important to you. In that respect, you'd want to install the games on the SSD and the one you've picked out just won't cut it. Windows 10x64 alone will account for about 11GB of space on the SSD, and then there are all the other applications you may want to install. This is before you even get around to installing games, which oftentimes will consume several GBs of space per game.

    However, that is not to say you can't use the SSD for your OS and general apps, and then use the 1TB drive for installing your games. They just won't load as fast, and I just wanted to point this out to try and help you make an informed choice.
