Hello
So i got gigabyte z97x gaming 3 motherboard , and im gonna buy another ssd. I decided to go with Adata xpg Gamminx s11 pro and its m.2 nvme. Can i run it as secondary disc on board s m2 connector ? I expect lower speeds but i think it would be better for future upgardes, so if its able to run as 2nd disc without bios updates or sth (just plug and play) i would go for it.

Any informations would be aprreciated :)

In a PCIe slot with an adapter, sure.

Personally, I'd steer away from an ADATA. We've seen too many reports of issues.
And unless you're getting it at a REAL discount...it will be less expensive later, for that future upgrade.

But without adapter, on m2 slot ? Dont want to lets say waste money on adapters :). So what do you recommend for around 70 euro (500GB)?
