I use PC for my architectural work
recently I need to update 2 things .

my MoBo says m.2 socket 3 . In manual I read it’s m.2 PCIe X4 m key socket
can I install wd blue or any m.2 Daya drive to m.2 PCIe slot. ?
and 2nd question is my psu is only 280 watt . When I checked power drawn on kilowatt meter it shows 135watt for my rendering jobs .
i want to ask u of installing Quadro p1000 will help . For now I m using default amd r 370x .
And what is max my MoBo PCIe x16 slot power output. I saw on Internet saying it’s limited to some range so can’t use p1000
