@pauld123 , welcome to the Community.

 

There is One M.2 socket 3, key M socket on the motherboard for a M.2, SSD.  This will allow you to use a NVMe, M.2: https://www.newegg.com/samsung-970-evo-1tb/p/N82E16820147691?&quicklink=true

 

Here is a very good guide to help you understand the keys and sockets for M.2's: https://www.atpinc.com/blog/what-is-m.2-M-B-BM-key-socket-3

 

You may want to consider a M.2 boot drive, as well.  This will increase system performance considerably.  You could use a standard SSD to install your games: https://www.newegg.com/samsung-1tb-870-evo-series/p/N82E16820147793
