Can someone explain me please? I heard that for windows you have to buy separate SSD that means that I can't keep system and games on one SSD and I should be one for windows and a HDD (or second ssd) for other things. Is that true? Or can keep on one SSD Fortnite and windows while all other stuff is on HDD? And if yes what do I need a 120gb or 240gb one?

2x8gb 2666MHz

There is no universal configuration.

Many many systems have a single drive, be it SSD or HDD.
Everything goes on it.

Many other systems (like mine) have multiple drives. One for the OS and applications, other drives for other things.

120Gb for windows isn't a whole lot of room for much else when you consider that you shouldn't partition the whole drive for use and games can be very large these days. 120Gb would be about 90gb after leaving 20GB (about 20%) unpartitioned.

The User appdata folder will grow (and it resides on the SSD) as you install programs/games; even if those get installed to another drive.
