Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently bought a second hand PC for around 120 USD.It came with an 2200g , Asrock a320m hdv r4.0,Corsair CX450,1 TB HDD and Cruicial 8GB DDR4 @ 2400 mhz. I installed an rx 480 .So Can I install an nvme ssd as the board has an m2 slot which is advertised as having pcie gen3 suppourt?

Yes. Any gen 3 m.2ssd will work. 

If you are looking for cheap ones, ADATA sx6000 lite is ok for the price.

If there's only one stick of memory, you should install a 2nd stick as soon as possible... you will get up to 10-15% extra performance just by using dual channel (having 2 sticks in pc) and the extra memory will also help and give even more performance.

Also, it's worth noting that Ryzen processors really benefit from higher frequency memory like 3000 Mhz or 3200 Mhz. Going from 2400 to 3000 Mhz on the memory may give you at extra 2-5% performance in most applications and games.

Depending on your budget, it may be worth getting 2 sticks at 3000-3200 and selling the single stick of 8 GB 2400 Mhz.
