i currently have 2x VelociRaptor 250gb HDDs in Raid, (WD VelociRaptor WD2500HHTZ - hard drive - 250 GB - SATA-600 )

 

and, thinking of buying this https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07VX615T9?ref=em_1p_0_ti&ref_=pe_4028881_485821941 so i can have a m.2 boot drive.

 

however, i have no idea if this is any good? would the game loading be any better? as would it be limited to SATA the same as my existing drives.

 

My motherboard is https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/Z68AGD80_B3.html with the 2600k on it.

you will be limited to sata, i doubt you will have a massive difference over getting a regular sata ssd

I recommend to just buy a 2.5" SATA SSD.

Even that would be quite a bit faster than your existing HDDs. Even in Raid 0 they're quite slow.

 

One advantage of an SSD compared to an HDD is the response time.

They react a lot faster to changes and so the system will feel a lot snappier.

 

In case of the adapter you would be limited to SATA 3 speeds and you'll only be able to use M.2 SATA interface drives, which is essentially the same as a standard 2.5" SATA SSD. You would basically buy a M.2 drive for the sake of putting it into an adapter.

In case of USB confusion, refer to this sh*t.

  • 05Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 1 (USB 3.0)
  • 10Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2
  • 20Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2x2
  • 40Gb/s - Thunderbolt 3
  • 40Gb/s certified - Thunderbolt 4
  • 40Gb/s - USB 4

yeah, that's what I thought. I used to have a kingston SSD in this PC, (its getting on for 9 years old now lol) 

 

but that SSD was 2nd hand and lasted me only 2 years before failing, I just took it out and put my OS straight onto the RAID.
