Need help finding a good budget memory

I’m building a pc and I found a $50 hdd, but I know those are sort of out of date. I think ssd’s are the way to go but I’m not sure how much storage I need or whether I should use an m.2. I’m not too familiar with terms(like PCIe or stuff like that) and I’m relatively new to pc parts and builds.

I would get a 240GB or larger SSD. That would be okay if you have a hard drive in your system.

 

A Crucial BX500 or MX500 would be good cheap options.

The MX500 will stay faster if you use a lot of its capacity.

I think 240gb should be enough 

I think you can go with adata xpg sx850 it the cheapest ssd with dram cache which i found today 

Crucial Mx500 are good 

I would not go with bx500 

 

As u are in budget I think sata is ur only option.

Going m.2 would be nice but it will be slightly priced high and also u need ur motherboard to support it .

 

Performance is similar in both the ssd so don't worry.

 

Hope this helps You bro
