Meh, glad SSDs are cheaper but this has been $69.99 regularly on amazon prime for some time now.

I've been reading about ssd's here for a while. Trying to decide whether to jump from my HHDs. Still wondering what do I really need. I know I want a faster boot time for Win 10. in that case this ssd should be more than enough if I just want my Win10 on it and nothing else correct? My online games and steam account would be fine on the HDDs because SSD's really don't offer me anything extra. I'm I correct have I understood what I've been reading correctly?

Yep you're absolutely correct. Faster boot timeand file transfers. An ssd for gaming would provide minimal extra performance, so dont get it for gaming if you dont have to.

What are you smoking?!?! Stop giving an advice if you have no clue of what you are talking about.
Game load times are at least 2x faster than any HDDs. In bewteen loading screens are much faster as well.

I'd say that depends on the game, for instance, in league of legends, it wouldn't matter much, but for games like Fallout 4 or Skyrim it makes all the difference.

I got the Corsair MP300 M.2240GB a few weeks ago. It works really well.

This was installed in my Acer i5 which I knew about from another SD thread. Got the Acer for $250 on clearance at Walmart. It was slower than a turtle out of the box. After installing the Corsair M.2 it flies.

I am not a gamer but work with Photoshop a lot.

The biggest problem with some M.2 NVMEs are the heating issues. I live in SoFL and have been monitoring the M.2 temp with CrystalDiskMark. The highest it has gotten was 54 Celsius. It's usual hovers in the low 40s.

One thing many may miss because it's not in the documentation is there is Corsair cloning software. I found it on the Corsair support site. Yes, I know there are other cloning apps. But I decided to use the Corsair software and it cloned everything perfectly.

SSDs make a dramatic difference with gaming, period.

Yep, DOOM comes to mind. Esp that first loading session, people think the games crashed on a regular drive lol

So, if you have an M.2 slot, but your motherboard doesn't support NVME, what happens? Is there some backward SATA compatibility? Does it go down to SATA speeds? Does it not work at all? Or something else?

TLBig GrinR - I wanna buy the NMVE drive right now and put it in my non NMVE mobo, hoping it will perform at least adequately until I upgrade the mobo in the fall. Is that possible?

This crap Acer I have here is annoying. It looks good on the surface but oh so many corners were cut. Fast CPU (i7-6700). Decent big storage drive. 16gb DDR4 RAM. But they haven't updated the bios in forever. They were selling a computer with m.2 slots but not NMVE support in 2017, and the soundcard sounds like I'm underwater. Case is fine. Power supply has already been upgraded. So I think my next step is to swap out the Mobo with a semi-budget, but modern mobo from a manufacturer with a track record of actually updated their bios. Will it work to buy the drive now and use it until I upgrade the Mobo? Or is buying NMVE m.2 without NMVE support just buying a paperweight?

it won't work in a SATA m.2 slot, but a PCI-E card adapter may work if the BIOS is nVME-aware

Thanks. I think I'll hold off for now, get the motherboard, then do the storage upgrade then. Much appreciated! Repped!
