25GB Samsung M2 SSD costs approx 50 USD , the 'recommended' PCI-E cards cost more than that
I am just looking to see if they are compatible ?
Sorry I meant 256GB
Anyone of the following ?
Because a regular SATA SSD in one of the drive bays would be limited to SATA 2 which would offer nearly half the transfer speeds
I am looking to go down this route because cheap M2 PCI Express adapter cards are only $5 and allow me to use SATA 3 speeds (approx 500/450 mb/s read&write)
No cheap M.2 PCI-E cards exist ?
It would be my OS drive with software installed. For a small outlay I don't see why I should bottleneck my system with Sata 2
I appreciate what you are saying but you don't even know that I intend to photo edit and encode video.
There is no great expenditure for me over a SATA drive. Will a cheap M.2 PCIE adapter work or not?
