Which of these NVME 1TB drive is the best for the price?

HI guys!

I'm looking for a new drive for my system, a 1TB that would fit in my little slot on my motherboard...i don't know much at all about these SSD's so i'm requesting help from you guys in the know :)

I need something that will be compatible with my system (Asus Z370-E Gaming) it will be used to store games...i have multiple SSD's already in this machine but nothing in that little slot.

 

Is it worth it to get NVME for that? or should i pocket the 20$ and just get the ''non NVME'' Team drive i saw for 100$?

 

THanks, so which one? (these are canadian pesos that's why it's more expensive)

To store games it literally doesn't matter which SSD you use.

 

I boot on a NVMe and most of my games I got on SATA SSD. If I move games to the NVMe I don't notice a difference. Get whichever is cheapest.

Right now for gaming there's no point to nvme but that could change soon with direct storage. For that reason I'd just go ahead and spend the extra $30 or so for a fast gen 3 nvme ssd. If you decide not to go nvme just go for a standard 2.5 inch sata ssd. I generally go off the ssd tier list we have on the forum

For $100 you can get 4-6TB HDD.

Are you sure don't wanna HDD game drive? Because that's is a lot of space.

i have 4 SSDs in my system right now because the HDD was the loudest part in my system by a long shot i DEFENETLY won't go back to hard drives that's for sure :)

i know it's a lot of space, but i have a 1TB, a couple 512GB...i have GTA5, BF5, RDR2 and a couple racing sims that takes quite a few hundreds of GB but usually i'm fine i would just trash in an extra TB one for mostly games i download and play for a while or test etc...some vr titles etc.

 

Also thanks to the guys your anwers we're greatly appreciated...the reason i want one for the little slot if i already have plenty of sata cables and power cables routed behind and i don't feel like messing around in there and stuff...is there any downside i should be aware of with getting one for the little slot?

 

Thanks :) @aDoomGuy@Fungal@SupaKomputa

Using the m.2 slot can disable sata ports. Check your motherboard manual to see which ones are disabled when an nvme drive is in use.
