Yeah, the difference from HDD to SSD is massive, probably greater than SATA to M.2.....

...but the leap from M.2 is still a huge one. Interested to hear what you think.

My board is now 4 years old, which for me is about as long as I usually go between PC builds, but this one was a decent-ish spec when I bought it, and I am not feeling a current need to upgrade.

I thought I had an M2 I was going to reuse to extend its life, but that was originally bought for the board my wife now has (and it wouldn't work if you used SATA ports beyond its third iirc). It was actually an mSATA drive that I threw into a USB3 enclosure and used for my XBOX, sped things up considerably.

Anyway, this is a 1TB also, and I'm just throwing games and programs on here and snatching the occasional image I guess. No reason to have as much internal storage as before when I'd build, and 1T is a lot when all my big files live elsewhere. Need to figure out how to get rid of some of this crap. Older 240, 250 SSDs and a 1TB and 2TB HDD I had when this case was new 8 years ago. I'll probably keep the two 500s, I've got two slower 5TBs (listed at 5,900 RPM) I yanked out of cheap Seagate "Deskstar" or whatever from Costco.
