Question TPM - is it worth it?

Apr 26, 2020
Hi all....
I have finally up graded and got myself win 10
I have a MSI motherboard and would like to use encription for any drives that I connect to it
I see that win 10 comes with bitlocker however unless I am mistaken for me to get full benefit from it I need to use a TPM
Problem is MSI do not support this here in the UK and if I wanted to get one I have to buy from another country ie USA
The other problem is I am finding it very difficult to get informaion on whether or not it is even worth bothering with and because of this.. its making me feel that there must be better options of protecting computers, their components, and their networks than a TPM?
Any advice would be more than very welcome..!
