I checked this price against Amazon, although it was higher, for some reason they were not adding tax (normally they do for everything I buy). That plus free prime shipping meant the total price was 179.99, compared to 180.19 at Newegg. Just a heads up...

Just checked this on Amazon, and its $199.99. So looks like with tax, this is still the better deal. Not sure where you getting the $179.99 from

Hmm that is odd. I ended up purchasing it and again my total was 179.99 (no tax & no shipping)

How does this compare to the m.2 Samsung 960 EVO?

Edit: found this comparison: http://www.storagereview.com/adat...ssd_review

Bottom line is, it's worse than most of the top-selling consumer NVMe drives, but better than most SATA-based SSDs.

i'm waiting for the intel 760p 512GB. it should be selling for around the same price but it just came out. based on the reviews, it destroyed the 960 pro in 4kQD1.

it's less expensive - so price/performance is close
it has a longer wty, and will still be 2x faster than a SATA SSD at a small premium.

How do you even use these things? Lol. I am afraid that my PCIe lanes will get clogged up and take away from my GTX 1080 Ti. Can someone enlighten me?

That won't be a problem. First of all, there are people who put 4x NVME drives in a striped array and they benched about 3200MB/s. Yet loading a game saved maybe 1 or 2 seconds at most compared to a fast SATA III SSD. The fact is that Windows cannot make use of this much speed anyway, except in very rare scenarios like a sustained read/write of a single very large file, or an artificial benchmark.

In other words, these things are capable of very high bandwidth, but don't typically actually use that much in real world scenarios.

Secondly, even if you WERE doing something that could max out the SSD (like copying a 2TB file to it), which seems very very unlikely to do while gaming, the throughput of the PCIe lane is not the bottleneck for GPU performance. People have plopped the 1080ti on older PCIe 2.0 slots (which have only half the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0) and performance is hardly affected at all.
