You can check the above link but go for these;
Wd blue
Crucial mx500
Samsung Evo 860
Adata su800
And ill recommend 500gb because higher storage ssd have longer lifespan and have more performance compared to the small drive of same model and 500gb are usually $10-15 more.

Thanks,but in my country the ssd prices are higher than usual and that makes me so angry.Should i get 1tb hddthen and 500gb ssd?
 
My suggestion is to buy the 500gb ssd and omit the HDD entirely.
You can have a fair number of games on 500gb.
If/when you run out of space then it is easy to add a HDD later for bulk storage.
As to ssd devices, the quality has come a long way.
Still, I think Intel or samsung make the best quality ssd's.
They use their own components and can control quality better.
You might even be able to find a 1tb samsung 870 QVO at a decent price.

I will install my games on the hdd mb rainbow six siege on ssd but i need this ssd for windows and my programs and i really think that samsung has the best quality ssd right now from lots of reviews on yt,reddit etc.

I suggest getting the SSD + HDD combo if that's what you can afford. Whatever games you play often, put them on the SSD. The rest can live on the HDD.

Storage performance doesn't tend to affect in-game performance unless the game is a recent open world one. But even then, I wouldn't dismiss gaming on an HDD.
