    Just change the target directory when you do the install (thinking you have a spare HDD installed to do this).

    During install the games ask for a destination folder. Change the destination path for "C..." to any other drive letter (D is usually the first non-OS drive, but your mileage may vary).

    If you mean Steam games, then it's a little more complex...
