hey guys, i have this motherboard (https://www.asus.com/cl/Motherboards/970-PRO-GAMING-AURA/specifications/) and wanna know what M2 storage systems it support? i just want to switch my old HDD to a new storage system to reduce in game load times. The other question is, do i need to install a new operating system inside the new storage system if i already have it inside my old HDD(Windows 10 PRO x64)?

what im trying to explain is that i want to stay with my HDD with Windows 10 PRO x64 and get a new storage system to put games on it and get faster load times.

Hope you guys can help me.

Some examples:

-850w cooler master gold standard power supply
-Seidon watercooling
-Thermaltake case
-Windows 10 PRO x64 on a 500 gb HDD.

What version of Windows are you running? I am not familiar with Windows 10 ultimate x 64. Windows 7 was the last version to have an Ultimate version, IIRC.

Personally, I would not add a m.2 SSD to this older system. Rather, I would recommend a fast, reliable, larger capacity, and less expensive SATA SSD (2.5 inch form factor).

Yes.....but go for the Samsung, instead of the Gigabyte.

As COLGeek mentioned, it really doesn't make much sense to install an NVMe drive on this vintage motherboard but, you know your situation better than we do.

Muy buena suerte.
