so your mainboard supports a number of M.2 drives.
but when running one, you'll lose one SATA port.

when you're running 3 M.2 drives, chances are you aren't using the other sata-ports anyway
Ok so these m.2 slots what exactly goes on them? Just storage? im Very new to PC and am still learning. So SATA is where SSD and HDD go but you can get an SSD m.2

Yes, it's storage. M.2 is a form-factor. They can be either SATA or NVMe/PCIe.

You're only looking at a single M.2 NVMe drive in that build, so it's nothing you'd need to worry about.

As an aside, for someone very new.... that's a very well thought out system. Although the DVD drive looks a little out of place :ROFLMAO:

It's easy enough, provided you have a working system you can create the media on.

You download the media creation tool here:

And basically follow the prompts. Pretty foolproof, honestly.
