I'm considering upgrading my HDD, as the 1TB one isn't cutting it, I need more space.

 

I was also thinking of an SSD to run the OS on to speed things up.   I know almost nothing about SSD and need some recommendations.  Do SSD have a special slot on motherboards?  Are they SATA?  If SATA, does that make them slower?

My current setup I have a 500gb m.2 ssd which runs my OS and select software, I also have a dedicated 250 SSD for Select games such as Arma3 another 150 SSD for any important stuff and 6TB of HDDS for the rest of my crap lol

m.2 SSD connects straight to your motherboard (Fastest)
normal SSD depending on brand uses a normal SATA connection like your HDD but does not get bottle necked like a HDD since it has no moving parts. (Fast)

Other option to look at is a PCI SSD but they are really expensive compared to a m.2 SSD

SSD do have a x2 or more timer slot. Check your Mobo manual for them. Some older mobos only have 1 for SSD. Flawless and turn off the read/write cache in the bios. Reduces the life of it.
