Doesn't matter much really.

Where the NVME should be significantly faster like actually installing the games network limitations void most of it.

Load times are more software limited between both.

Only time NVME has a solid advantage is when the OS is installed on the same drive, the extra bandwidth can come into play with multiple things accessing the drive at the same time where Sata drives would slow down.

I would go with one just because seconds saved are seconds saved and it gets you gaming faster for pretty much the same money.

Oh true i was planning to have the OS installed on the same drive, Do you need a large NVME like a 1TB or does it not matter much?

With how the current prices are I wouldn't bother with anything under 480/500gb and would suggest getting 960gb/1tb.

Having more fast storage has never been an issue but running out is.
