Currently have a Samsung 860 Evo 250gb as my game SSD, 500GB Samsung 970 Plus M.2 Nvme, and 1TB Western Digital Black, Just decided to spend on larger game SSD, 860 Evo 1tb, and WD Black 4TB storage drive for my Main Gaming Desktop.

Should i keep the Samsung 860 Evo 250GB installed in my auxillary SSD storage spots that came with case, should i remove it and save it for future use? I believe i should have at least 1 more Serial ata power plug available to plug that drive in, and bought a straight serial ata data cable, and also bought extra screws as PC shop didn't include any extra screws after building the system in June

Intel I7 10700, 16gb of ram, Nvidia 1660 Super, Case Thermaltake V200 RGB, 1 wifi pci e card with bluetooth 5.0

Ok excellent, i think i do have extra sata power plugs, i know i got sata connection ports left, right now only using sata 2 of 6 ports, probably 2 disabled with the newer m.2 nvme installed, but don't really care on ports 5-6 lol as don't think adding enough drives to use all the ports lol

Mount space definitely have, have 2 spaces on motherboard back panel, and have 1 spot taken 2.5 inch bay above the 3.5 inch drive, so really can keep the 250gb drive in it's current space, add the 1tb newer gaming ssd to other mount space, find an available power plug, so really just need to replace the 1tb 3.5 inch drive with the 4tb.

don't think will be too hard after all

Yeah aware of that aspect, i should have probably the last 2 ports, maybe 5-6 disabled due to the M.2, should have ports 3-4 avaialble, but i'll look at the manul after dinner to verify that
