My SSD is running out of space in my machine and I thought rather than just put in a larger one I would take advantage of the M.2 connector in the MB.

 

The MB is this one  https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-A320M-S2H-rev-1x/sp#sp

 

The documentation says the M.2 socket is as follows

 

1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 SATA and PCIe x4/x2* SSD support)
* Actual support may vary by CPU.
* Supports only M.2 SATA SSDs when using an AMD Athlon™ 200-series/ 7th Generation A-series or Athlon™ APU.

 

The current processor in the MB is an AMD Ryzen 3 2200G

 

I am new to this are but this does mean I can put in something like this?

or I am limited to something like this

Sounds good thanks. I will probably get 1TB version since the prices are so good.

 

 

 

What about this one? So many choices

I presume the process being, install the drive, restart Windows. Use disk manager to configure the disk and then do a clone of my current boot drive. Then go into the BIOS and change the boot device to the new NVME and restart and cross my fingers :-)
