Hello, I am looking to buy an SSD. I'm not sure whether my motherboard has this slot or not but if it doesn't what will I do, am I better off getting a 2.5'' SSD?
My motherboard is an MSI SLI Krait Edition Z97 LGA1150 and I have a i7 4790K CPU.

Links to SSDs I'm thinking about getting:

If you have any advice on any other SSD to get please give me some tips, Thanks!

Your Motherboard will take an NVME M.2 drive, the slot is directly below the CPU socket (https://asset.msi.com/resize/image/global/product/five_pictures2_3266_20140829112347.png62405b38c58fe0f07fcef2367d8a9ba1/1024.png)

They do perform better than SATA connected drives.

Id go with the Samsung of those two options.

The NVME drives you've selected are better than SATA SSDs (they are both SSDs btw).

The difference is solely how they connect to your system.

I would suggest run windows and your most used games off the NVME drive and have an SSD for photos, music, less used games etc...
