Isn't there some issue if I use 2 pcie ssds? I forget what the issue was... I know one thing is I was worried about it being one more device to share the mobo's pcie lanes... but seems like there was some other issue... I wonder what it could be?

Also, again, I have a 512gb 970 pro, already, and was just thinking of getting a second ssd where maybe I could do a build with no hdds needed, thus less noise and worry of issues. I wonder if this would be a good choice for a secondary drive... or I could get a SATA one, but probably wouldn't save much compared to this $99.

Llike I said in the other topic, I'm not so sure how a 970 pro being able to move huge amounts of files at once matters because the drive you are moving those files TO would come into play, then, so wouldn't a pro be worthless if you don't have a second one? Otherwise what other device would you even move the files to which would utilize that faster movement???

Anyway, so bottom line... I am looking for a secondary ssd just for things normally someone would use a HDD for. videos, music, whatever…. I already have the 970 pro for the more demanding stuff. So I wonder if I should go even cheaper than this and also just get sata?

So my real question is can I even get a 1tb ssd much cheaper than this? If even the low end ones cost not much less, I might as well get this one. Again, it's just to replace what would have been a hdd for stuff I deem not important enough for the 970.

Yes you can, I use a drive similar to this(most crapped on for being QLC) but it works amazing for a game library drive. Super fast writes and reads.

My Mobo (GB Z390 Designare) loses 3 of it's 6 SATA ports if both NVMe slots are occupied. Port 0 & 1 for the first slot and port 5 for the second.

Seems like a good deal for a pretty decent 1TB SSD.

I don't think that issue would affect me because the only way I am getting this is if I don't want any hdds. But seems like there was something else... There was some reason only one would work at advertised speeds or something... I wish I could remember. I've never built before. So I don't remember all of the limitations, and how it works if you have a lot of devices sharing the pcie lanes. ie the cpu only has x number, so the more you go above that it can't use all devices properly at once.

I'm just trying to figure out if there is any 1tb ssd much cheaper than this, since this would be the device to replace my hdds, not my main ssd. So, in other words, ANY ssd would be better than an hdd, so the bottom line is should I get the cheapest one or would it still be close to $100 for 1tb?

Sweet deal.

Tom's Hardware gave the 660p their "Editor's Choice" award in its review [tomshardware.com]. The only "con" was the lower endurance of its QLC memory.

As I look back at past SD deals tot ry to answer my own question, it looks to me like no... you can't really get a much cheaper 1tb ssd even if you sacrifice speed. I saw one sata ssd that went for $85 and otherwise nothing got much lower than this. I think the Samsung 860 is almost the same performance as this, though, and that ahs been under $100 as well.

So just looking back... it seems like this is about as good as you could do for even close to the price and then if you want to go up a level the next best deals have been around $140 for decently better drives of the size. Then of course even higher than that for deals on Samsung's best ones.

I have the MSI Gaming Pro AC MB with the same issue. I think this is by design due to the limited shared PCIe lanes on Intel chipsets. I have a Z370 with the same issue.

when they're sold straight through newegg it would have to have the warranty.

Can these prices go even lower? Been holding out. Could this go as low as $90 or $95?
