BEST EXTERNAL SSD FOR GAMES ON BOOTCAMP?
Everything works fine but I only gave the partition 200 GB
Anyone know how to run games through an SSD so I dont waste hard drive space?

For Boot Camp, you want to use a USB drive instead of Thunderbolt. The fastest USB drives use NVMe. The NVMe drive only needs to support 1000 MB/s because that's the max speed of USB 3.1 gen 2.
There are 3 main chipsets in the market: JMicron JMS583, Asmedia ASM2362, and Realtek RTL9210. The USB enclosures are inexpensive (especially compared to Thunderbolt). The Plugable USBC-NVME and Orico use the JMicron (I have both and they both perform well). The other chips might be newer/more efficient?
An example high capacity low price NVMe is the Intel 660p.
Game installers usually let you choose where to install them so that shouldn't be a problem.
@sudeepstacks, plug it wherever you like. The USB NVMe enclosures come with USB-C and USB-A cables so they will work with any USB port (that has enough power).
