  1. I bought a pre-built Asus from Best Buy (https://bit.ly/35T57tq) and I am looking at upgrading the stock motherboard and possibly the power supply. I would prefer a board with built in WiFi and Bluetooth, but I do have the WiFi/Bluetooth card that came with the system. Low noise (possibly RGB) case fans and CPU cooler recommendations would also be helpful. Any other recommended upgrades would also be appreciated. It is mostly used for offline gaming, and general purposes. Out of box specs (upgraded): CPU: Ryzen 5 3600x GPU: Nividia 2060 Super Ram: 16GB DDR4 3200MHz single channel (Corsair LPX 32GB DRAM 3000MHz C15 dual channel) Boot SSD: 512 GB Intel 660p (Secondary/Main storage SSD: 1TB Samsung 860 EVO) HDD: TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM PSU: Unknown brand 500 W *I know I could have built my own for cheaper and saved this hassle, but I wanted something to game on right way and do the upgrades and part swaps as I went, plus at the time I was lazy.
  2. (EDIT: Fixed model number) So I have 2 possible options (leaning towards option 2 because of price), but I am open to suggestions. Option 1: WD Blue 3D NAND 1TB PC SSD - SATA III 6 Gb/s M.2 2280 Solid State Drive - WDS100T2B0B https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B073SB2MXT/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_xJ9FEbQS2W4WD Option 2: Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD - CT1000P1SSD8 https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07J2Q4SWZ/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_nV9FEbY5GRKMV Thanks in advance for the help. System Specs: Acer Nitro 5 AN515-51-522L Intel Core i5 7300HQ 8GB DDR4-2400 Kingston Ram GTX 1050 4GB
  3. So I have see conflicting information about M.2 support for my laptop. I am completely new to the ssd market so apologizing in advice. Crucial's memory advisor tool says my drive interface is SATA/M.2 and SATA version is SATA 3 - 6Gb/s. I also found an Acer forum where people said that they had added NVMe M.2 drives with no issue. Was just hoping to get some clarification. Attached is a picture of the slot in question incase that helps.
