Hi guys I am planning to upgrade my PC I just use the PC Build Comparison in the website but i'm quite confused because the.

Proc: Ryzen 5 3600
Mobo: MSI B450 Tomahawk Max
Graphics: ASUS Dual GTX 1060 3gb OC (Currently own this one atm)
RAM: Hyper X Predator 3200mhz 2 x 8gb

SSD: Samsung EVO 860 500gb SSD 2.5 sata; R|W: 550|520 100k|90K, pn: MZ-76E500BW
HDD: Seagate ST31000524AS 1TB (Currently own this one atm)

1st Question is on the MOBO there is an Exclamation point and HDD and (Beta) both highlighted in Red that says incompatible. Do I need to replace my HDD? Because this HDD is with me for almost 4 years now but its still in good condition last time I check with Hard Disk Sentinel (Health and Performance at 100%)

2nd Question when looking for an SSD what does the R|W and the 100k|90K stands for?

3rd Question I mean in my country has a lot of variations for 500gb ssd should I get the cheap one like $60 one or push to the $90 one. Any ideas why do they price it like that if they all got the same capacity?


Thank you.

First mistake was going to Userbenchmark. If you don't hear any clackity noise from the HDD, leave it be but if it's got important files and documents, best you back it up in case the drive dies a silent death.

The read writes will vary from SSD to SSD. The numbers you're asking for are random writes and random reads.

Where are you located? Best shoot us a link to see if the cheaper SSD's are a good buy.

Yes I used userbenchmark is there any other website that I can use for this compatibility? Honestly upto know I don't hear any sounds with the HDD. I live in the Philippines the $60 brand for 500gb I am telling you is the

500gb Crucial P1 SSD M.2 NVME, R|W: 2000|1700 170k|240, pn: CT500P1SSD8 - $60
500gb Seagate Barracuda SSD 2.5 sata; R|W: 560|535 90k|90K, pn: STZA500CM1A002 - $70
500gb WDC Blue SSD 2.5 sata; R|W: 560|530 95K|84K, pn: WDS500G2B0A - $71
500gb Samsung 860 EVO SSD 2.5 sata; R|W: 550|520 100k|90K, pn: MZ-76E500BW - $90

I'm still quite not sure If I should get the WDC or the samsung but its still $19 that I could save tho
