The Steam client can stay on the C drive. That is tiny.

You can install the games on any drive you Wish, including an external.

Steam games location
In the steam client:
Steam
Settings
Downloads
Steam Library Folders
Add library folder


To move an already installed game
Games library
Right click the game
Properties
Local Files
Move Install Folder
