Current configuration: MB: ASUS Z170 PRO GAMING/AURA (only 1 m.2 slot) HD: 960 EVO 500GB (getting short on space) OS: Windows 10 Pro Parts on hand: Intel SSD 6 2TB m.2 riptop pci-e / m.2 adapter
Not sure what the best (performance) option here is when it come to newer drives.
Do I keep the 960 EVO in the m.2 slot and just add the Intel SSD to the adapter and move games / Steam folder off the boot drive (EVO) and on to the Intel ssd? (can it be this easy)
Swap out the evo for the Intel drive in the MB's m.2 slot and make the Intel drive my new boot drive? (giving me plenty of room) And then put the EVO on the adapter for additional storage.
Summary, which SSD should be the boot drive and is there an advantage of using the other as a location for installed game? Or is it best for everything to migrate to the larger Intel drive. And have the drive that ends up in the adapter just be additional storage.
