I don't know if it's the same price for all stores.. maybe add YMMV to the title?

Done! I think it may be for every store though. If you change the store location on the site and go to their black friday deals, they all say see in-store for current price

I'll be going by the Dallas one and picking this up tomorrow. Nice find. Pretty sure it's the same price at all the stores. Not currently available for purchase online. Says see store for current pricing. Limit 2.

At this price it is decent, though sometimes it can drop as low as $189.99 but this price still good. Try to grab one if you have a MC nearby. Additionally I think we can use the Retailmenot coupon to get $5 extra off instore checkout.

I have been out of the building game for a few years but I purchased a pre-built and I have 2 x 500GB SATA SSDs running in it but I really want one of these M.2 960 Evos.

My mobo is the MSI Z270, is it advisable to buy one to install Windows 10 on as my primary SSD with my other 2 standard SSDs for additional storage? I have read of all sorts of issues with people trying to install Windows on these things, from BIOS settings to having to remove all other SATA devices until the installation is complete.

Would I see much of an improvement over SATA SSD for everyday use? (it's a gaming rig)

You would have a measurable improvement by going from SATA 3 to NVME, but it would probably not be a noticeable difference for day to day use. I don't know that board, but as long as it supports NVME, I would say yes, it is advisable.

I'm pretty sure it does support it. It has a picture of the 960 Evo on the mobo page

I also have an MSI Z270. I'm running two M.2 SSDs in RAID0. To be fair I don't have any SATA drives but I'm guessing the newer boards won't have any issues with that. Just make sure you update your BIOS and you should be good to go. These drives are super fast and worth it IMO.

Confirmed, I just picked one up. Thanks for the info!
They had a lot of them in stock too, I saw them in the display case. I would guess about 30 or so from what I glanced at.
