I am considering getting a new PC soon (built at my local PC shop). I would like a 500 GB SSD for the Windows 10 OS and apps (also a 2 TB HDD for data). The PC is intended to be used as a general purpose home PC, with some gaming.
Which is best for the SSD?
- SATA SSD
- M.2 NVMe SSD
I understand that the latter has the better performance (as no SATA bottleneck) but are there any advantages/disadvantages to consider, other than cost? Does a traditional SATA SSD run cooler for example?
