Crucial M.2

OK I know the EVO's are top notch, but a 1 tb m.2 nvme ssd is ~$250. (https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-970-EVO-1TB-MZ-V7E1T0BW/dp/B07BN217QG/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1547047404&sr=1-3&keywords=1tb+ssd+nvme)

This Crucial NVMe m.2 is only $170. Is crucial worth it?

Disclaimer I know that I will see diminishing returns going from a 1 tb sata ssd to a nvme m.2

I'm still deciding the value of that vs what I'm willing to pay. But if the crucial one is good enough, then it's barely more than $15 more than a sata one of the same size. The size of m.2 plus a bit of speed boost over a sata one would be more than enough to take on that extra $15. if I have to pay $250 though, the story gets muddier, so first I need to know if crucial can be trusted

It's a bit slower than the 970 Evo, so that makes sense. It's still blazing fast though compared to a SATA SSD. I'd say it's worth it.

I'm listening...

so right now I want to take an existing computer and revamp it. I've never done a full build, but i have frankensteined 2 prebuilts. I don't quite have the money this year for my dream build but my plan is to take the existing case (or a new one, haven't decided that yet), my gpu,  and any fans from the case as well as the nice PSU that came in it and put them together with a new mobo, cpu, ram and storage. With the parts I have, the cost shouldn't be too high and I can end up with a pretty decent set up still

 

Parts I have

Case: some full atx case. a bit old but still a very nice case, haven't decided if i'll drop down to a mid yet. Eventually i am building my computer inside of a drawer, so i might not waste the money on a new case now. The only reason to consider is the front io aren't working.

PSU: Corsair 750 of some variety

GPU: RX560 4GB. Not amazing, but should do VR until i can spring for something better

Parts to get

am4 mobo undetermined, doesn't need to be amazing as long as io is decent. I'm not overclocking

R5 2600, unless some better stuff is announced for ryzen 2

trident Z rgb 3000 16 gb because with the price being barely more than a vengeance set non rgb, why not?

storage is the reason for this post. I will also be using some tax return to build a home server. Undetermined part list, though I want at least 3 2tb drives in raid 5

@LukeSavenije any comments/suggestions?

yep...

lower wattage psu

stronger gpu for a little more (example https://pcpartpicker.com/product/MsWfrH/xfx-radeon-rx-580-8gb-gts-xxx-ed-video-card-rx-580p8dfd6)

trident z is pretty nice, but look at some cheaper alternatives at 3000+ mhz too

too many cases to choose from... that's kinda something for you and tvwazhere

i already have the psu and the gpu, those are existing parts. As for the ram, the cheaper alternatives are within $15 and I like the style of them, even without the rgb i love the look
