Is this a joke?
Anything, you need to lower the graphic settings for some games.

Mix medium setting on 1080p on 2018-19 games.

Nowaday even medium setting looks really good, many console games runs on low - medium setting and still looks great.

i7-7700 HQ 2.8 GHz - I'm pretty sure we can clearly see that by the CPU model...

Just means you have slower loading times, no big deal.

HQ processors are only found in laptops. So, it is easy to see that your PC is a laptop and not a desktop.

Well, in some games that do a lot of texture streaming (mainly those running on UE3) or have a really big open world suffer performance-wise from slow hdd's.

For example I got some stutters in The Crew 2 when entering different locations. Moved to my SSD and not a single issue since then.

Also being it a single drive PC, where OS is running off the same harddrive as the game, the stutter is almost granted (in newer + open-world games) and loading times can get atrocious (from my POV, though).

I'd recommend assembling a really fast external USB3 HDD for games. NEVER buy the slow-ass pre-built ones you buy at a store. If you want to keep the portable aspect (no need for external power supply)- buy a 2.5" USB3 box + a 7200 RPM HDD (i'd recommend Seagate BarraCuda Pro 1TB).

So you have one of those laptops with 2 drive bays? I'd suggest using the SSD as a primary drive for OS, apps and some games that benefit from it and keep the HDD for other games/stuff.

If you are looking for a combo of good performance+reliability+price, you can't go wrong with Crucial MX500 - https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/storage-ssd-mx500
