Okay so this is my entire pc setup

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Kingkrumble/saved/JN7ccf

My Windows start up isn't on the ssd since I added the ssd later on in my system.

I was wandering whats the best way to make the pc faster? whether its buy more ssd's and have them in my system and just transfer to a pure ssd system. Moving my windows startup to ssd.
If I do go an entire ssd system would it be better to have a dedicated small ssd for start up and then have everything else saved on other drives? Or what else is likely a bottleneck for just general use speed?

Okay so if I went for this 970 evo. Would this just be for Windows startup or should this be also for programs ect? I'm curious if I clog it up with random stuff will you see much performance difference?
 
There are Intel 660P NVME 1 TB drives for $109 on Amazon; it seems well worth the extra $30 or so to get ~4 times the capacity....

Certainly the afforementioned 970 EVO/EVO Plus are awesome, however, it's just that 250 GB seems to fill up so quickly. I'd much rather install most programs to the SSD as well, making (or restoring from) a backup image much easier...; my own 500 GB NVME drive has the OS, one game, and a smattering of useful utilities, and before you know it , the drive was/is 60% full...

Okay so i just brought the Samsung 970 Evo plus 250 GB, how would I go about or where can I find a way to move my files between different hard drives most effectively without losing anything?
edit:
I will also be purchasing the Samsung 860 Evo 500 GB

my idea is to have just windows boot of the 970 Evo plus
games to be stored on the Samsung 860 Evo 500gb (the games that vary 10-60gb(I'm not a hardcore gamer anymore but it's nice to have a few quick options)
and general stuff eg cad, blender, Google, smaller games to be stored on my current Kingston - A400 240gb SSD
