Which M.2 for Crosshair VII?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Looking at Samsung 970 Evo 1Tb M.2-2280 or Intel 660P for this board. It will hold windows 10. Would not hold photos and videos on it but run other programs off it. Price wise, is it better choice for intel 2Tb than 1Tb 970 pro (also for future proofing).

Both will be fast and there is almost no speed gain in day to day tasks.So I would say to go with intel.

I'd probably just go for a MX500 M.2. NVMe might be faster, sure, but it won't actually make a difference.

Also, the 660p is mediocre for a NVMe drive, and is really slow after 75% filled.

Spoiler

OK, i'm not even gonna build this, but is this a good workstation?
