You'll want an NVMe drive. Crucial P1, Intel 660p, Sabrent Rocket, HP EX900/920/950 are all good. Team and Mushkin brands are also good. For a general purpose boot / gaming drive you can basically buy on price as long as it's not one of the made-in-a-basement knockoffs, and pcpartpicker doesn't list any of those anyway.

For more serious work like photo/video editing, content creation, VM or database serving, you'd want to pay more attention to specs like speed and write endurance. For a boot and gaming drive it simply doesn't matter.

Yes that PC is just like HTPC/Gaming build that I have in the living room that I use to Netflix some gaming and stuff like that . Nothing extreme

The the Rocket would be the idea, usually cheaper than the P1 if wanting an 1/2TB SSD.
