I'm looking at getting a new higher capacity drive. Samsung 960 EVO 500 GIG V-Nand is the one I'm thinking about.

Super fast compared to my other drives.Would I gain the most benefit from the speed by putting it as my OS drive, or 

as the drive for all my other stuff like Games ?

Are you going M.2 NVME or just SATA? Because at this point if its just SATA, you won't benefit from paying premium on a SATA drive.

 

I find putting your OS on any SSD is the best if you haven't already. I started with 60GB SSD and haven't looked back. Even the cheapest Sata SSD will make your OS fly compared to a platter drive.

It's an M.2 drive.I don't have any HDD's in my computer. All SSD's Their just getting old. I know that there's a speed that doesn't how mush faster it is I won't see 

any performance boost because of what I use the computer for. I just don't know what the speed is..The OS drive is an Samsung EVO 840 @ 250 gig.
