    Question Don't know if this is the right area but after installing new CPU, my pc keeps saying reboot and select proper boot device.

    I'm looking at Samsung's offerings for m.2 SSDs, and they seem to have three tiers for their 970 series. What is the performance/durability difference between the 970 Evo, 970 Evo Plus, and the 970 Pro? Is the price difference between these models justifiable? Thanks!
