Hello,

I have a desktop PC with GA-97M-D3H Motherboard, and I'm looking to add an SSD / NVME Drive for using as Boot Drive , Running a VM , Developer tools like Visual Studio etc.

The cost of SSD (Crucial MX500 500 GB) and NVME (WDS500G2B0C or CT500P1SSD8) + Adapter costs almost the same ~$3 difference, so it seems ideal to pick the NVME drive even if the speed differences are minimal.

My motherboard doesn't have native hardware for NVME, so I am going to have to use a PCIe 2.0 slot with NVME Adapter which will have to be used on PCIe 2.0 x4 slot as I'm runnning Nividia GTX 750 Ti GPU on PCI 3.0 x16.

The motherboard bios page just specifies "Support NVMe device " , so I was looking to confirm if will support booting from the NVME.

Thanks!
 
If it supports, it should support fully or nada. This might help...
