Hello, so i decided to buy SSD first time but i don't know anything about ssd's.
Do i need to search some specific ssd which would fit with my motherboard or i can just buy any ssd? Also my PSU is 400w. It would be enough for SSD or no? Waiting for answers, thank you.

List your specs.

The type of SSD to get will depend on your motherboard as some are SATA and others are M.2. There are also PCIE adapters for M.2 SSD's if your motherboard doesn't support them. With a SSD you want to have your OS installed on it for the system to run smoothly and typically leave about 15-20% space free for it to continue to room great.

My motherboard is: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/H55ME33.html
PSU: Spire ATX 400 or 450w i don't remember right now.
If this is a non gaming system the PSU should be fine with a SSD. For that motherboard I'd get a SATA SSD, this Crucial would work well and is a massive improvement over a HDD.
