Which external SSD?

Hey guys,

Recently recevied my custom Cosmo Series laptop, and has been working great. The one thing I did not anticipate was the sheer size of the full COD MW game, so my 256gig SSD can't actually update it (as with COD updates they make you download the new patch 'on top of' the current download, before removing stuff etc to reduce the size).

So I was wondering if anyone could recommened a good external SSD that I can install / run games through, so I can keep my laptop freed up.
I've been recommended the 'SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable External SSD - USB-C, USB 3.1 - SDSSDE60-1T00-G25' and the ' Samsung T5 SSD ' so far.

And when the games run through an external SSD, do they still run through blizzard / steam etc?

I've posted my specs below, and any information will be much appreciated!

It would make more sense to replace the internal SSD. Since it's a SATA drive you can just unplug the old one and plug in the new. You will have to reinstall Windows of course but that's no biggie.

A fresh install is 212GB now anyway - Anyone wanting to play should really be looking at a 1TB disk minimum ... for future proofing....
