    If you want the fastest boot, go with a M.2 nvme drive. 128gig is more than enough for windows and a few other programs ie utilities, etc. I just checked my M.2 and windows enterprise, office 2016 and a few utilities are using approx 35gig.
    You are not going to install many games on a 128gig drive so IF you are going to install games, then get a mech drive 2TB or so for the games.

    When you install windows, be sure and have ONLY the M.2 installed. Win10 setup will place it's boot files on a drive connected to the first sata port. With only the M.2 installed, setup has no choice but to install all files to the M.2.

    Be sure and go with a quality drive ie samsung or intel and check the read/write speeds; not all drives are equal.
