A 2tb sabrent Rocket pcie 3.0 will be more than enough for a boot drive. It's like 220-250. You won't notice any meaningful difference between this and a Samsung 970
1 points • dcoulson
You should 100% get a NVME drive, but IMHO the 970 Pro is overpriced. There are plenty of way cheaper drives.
You should probably look at some successful builds and see what boards people are using - PSU is important, but don't overpay for it. There isn't any compatibility concerns, other than making sure it can power all the parts you select. Maybe check /r/buildapcsales and see what deals they have.

Sabrent 2TB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MTQTNVR?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
1 points • volcomador64
This is the M.2 SSD I installed in my Y740. Still expensive but cheaper than a Samsung or other manufactures for the same Storage. You could save some money and get a 1TB SSD for around 150$ but I would recommend a 2TB one.

Can i just get this instead of the Q? They're almost the same price. Regarding the sata speeds, my steam library is large and in a case of me wanting to transfer games to my c drive, i wouldn't want it at sata speeds. The price is also pretty negligible. It's only 60 dollars more for the 2tb m.2 equivalent. The price isn't much of an issue. I just wanted a solid rated drive in that price range.

One thing I’d change about this build, you don’t need that durable an SSD, maybe get this

Would this Sabrent variant work also ?? thanks in advance !

Why not save some money and instead of two NVMe drives you got one 2TB SSD? (https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Rocket-Internal-Performance-SB-ROCKET-2TB/dp/B07MTQTNVR/ref=mp_s_a_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=2tb+nvme&qid=1604127395&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyQ1U3ME9CSERNMkxXJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTAyODAwMkg3M1A5RENOSVBMMSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMjYzNjQ1MVg2UEROTU9aNUE1MSZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX3Bob25lX3NlYXJjaF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl). And do you really need an X570? Might be able to save some coin on the motherboard with a B550. Just my two cents. The rest looks really nice.

Just get a decent NVME M.2 SSD that is TLC with a DRAM cache. You don't need to go THAT overkill with optane. Stuff like this should be good enough for you probably.

If you're dead set on Intel and your budget can handle it I'd say go 10th gen as well. Or you could do something on the AMD side like a 3700X or even a 3900X which can be had around $400. However, at least right now, Intel still is the gaming king so if those few extra frames are super important then 10900K. Speaking of frames... I don't see a monitor listed. Are you looking for 4k, 1440p, 1080p? 60, 120, 144, 240 Hz refresh? That could affect what some might advise as well. For example at 1080p 120 Hz I doubt you'd be able to tell a difference in a sub $300 3700X and a $700 10900K with an RTX 3080 in a lot of games. I don't know for sure (no one really does yet), but I don't think a 3700X would bottleneck a 3080.
I'd bump to the 970 EVO+ for the small $10-ish price difference. If you ended up AMD I'd say go with a Gen4 NVMe drive, especially since the RTX 3080 may be able to handle loading direct from it to the GPU, so that extra Gen4 speed might actually come in handy at some point.
If it were me, I'd look for a platinum or titanium rated PSU though I understand that PSUs in general are a) more expensive than normal and b) harder to find right now thanks to global conditions.
Last thing I'd consider is the case. The C700P is a pretty big, pretty expensive case. I can only find the C700M available and it's $450+. There are a lot of cases with as many features, though not necessarily the look which I understand if that really speaks to you, for less than half the price. With that money saved even if you went with a $200 case (and there are some really nice $200 cases), you could nearly upgrade that Seagate 2 TB drive to a 2 TB Gen 3 NVMe drive. Have a 1 TB OS and super fast 2 TB storage. Though maybe you already have the case or are getting a great deal on it.

I didn’t know about Sabrent. I’m tempted by this one- good price for a lot of space- https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Rocket-Internal-Performance-SB-ROCKET-2TB/dp/B07MTQTNVR

The Samsung 970 EVO is not a great value. I have a Sabrent Rocket that I like. The 2 TB version is under $300.
Newegg has some 2070 Supers for under $600 that'll outperform the RTX 2060 Super, but it looks like most of the RGB ones like the AORUS are significantly more, so it's up to you.

A few members on the Discord received single sided versions. Unfortunately the single and double sided are both sold under one listing, just lottery of getting new or old stock, hence possibly needing to return and try again.

You can save some money getting a 2TB TLC M.2 like this.
You can opt for some better fans. Noctua fans/ chromax fans and use like a phanteks rgb frame.
Looks pretty solid.

So you want to download a bunch of triple a titles you’ll need at least 1tb, but if you can afford it I’d recommend going with this Sabrent 2TB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Performance Solid State Drive (SB-ROCKET-2TB) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MTQTNVR/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_3trcEbHQXT27W

I meant this Sabrent Rocket. This should have no issues on the back of a b550?
Either way these shouldn't affect the PCIe lanes for the graphics card right (3080)?

I would recommend the Sabrent Rocket, not the Q / QLC model: https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-SB-ROCKET-256-Rocket-Internal-Performance/dp/B07MTQTNVR/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=sabrent%2Brocket%2B256gb&qid=1579287438&sr=8-3&th=1
It's one of the best values in performance NVMe SSDs, and a 256GB model is under $50. It also includes a licence to Acronis; the same program Western Digital offers to clone hard drive.
The Silicon Power A80 is also worth looking at. Almost no other cheaper SSD will get 3000+ megabytes per second.

Unless you're planning on overclocking the stock cooler for the 3700X is probably sufficient. A bit noisy at times, but it works well.
MSI's x570 boards aren't good. If you want a budget x570 board then the ASUS TUF-Gaming board is a better option. You probably don't need an x570 though. B450 is probably sufficient for you and would save you some cash.
Four separate SSDs is a very interesting design choice. Generally speaking $/GB goes down as you scale to larger drives, so by picking out 4 separate drives you're maximizing cost and minimizing value. The 4 SSDs you have are listed as a combined ~$340 and come out to about 2TB nominally. Why do that when you can grab something like this for $280, also for 2TB nominally, and not have to deal with having 4 separate drives?
There are better HDD solutions if you need more for bulk storage. Something like this gives you an extra TB for like $13 more.

If you've got a big budget for drives, I would go for a mix of SSDs and HDDs. You could load the OS and whatever games you want to have boot the fastest onto the solid state drives, and everything else can be fronted to the hard drives.

Is there any significant/tangible difference between different manufacturers making the same class of SSD (in this specific case, a 2 TB NVME pcie gen 3 ssd)?
I'm trying to choose between the Samsung 970 Evo Plus vs the Sabrent Rocket and the price difference is significant enough to make me wonder whether there's a significant difference or not. If I can save $80 with no downside then I see no reason not to, but if the sabrent one is shittier in some way than the samsung one I'd like to avoid that.

Just wondering if I should get that drive or this one (Non Q version).

This is the way to go! I bought the Sabrent 2TB Rocket and it is fast. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MTQTNVR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I just upgraded my storage a few days ago.
I used https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rehA0elife4&feature=youtu.be to get me into and upgrade the laptop. It was a very accurate video for the complete upgrade.
I currently have Thermal Pads being shipped to me. Should arrive tomorrow or the next day. I'll be replacing the Thermal Paste and all of the Thermal Pads soon as they arrive.
Edit: Forgot to add. SO FAR LOVING the extra memory. TOTALLY worth the money spent. For the cost of a external you could get double the size m.2 stick. Just watch Newegg shell shocker page. They put 1tb on sale every other day.

From the site.
>Your computer supports one of the following configurations:
One 2.5-inch hard drive
One M.2 PCIe solid-state drive
One M.2 PCIe solid-state drive and one 2.5-inch hard drive
Since you are looking for an SSD, if you have the M.2 slot then ...
On the cheap, This guy will get you a 500 GB NVME M.2 SSD.
On the higher end you have something like this.
If it is 2.5" only ....

What's the speed?
I'd say getting this adapter:
should make it faster.
here's a pict of it in my Retina 15" (dont worry it uses the same connection) albeit a 1TB (most value currently)
