That is what I have moved to. My OS drive and the main work drive are now both very fast m.2 drives with a new 4TB SSD as the main internal storage/backup. An older spare SSD dropped in just because it's there and the only spinner is the main external "grab and run" backup drive that everything is copied to. Apps are much faster and my service to the house is 400/25 so when Norton isn't choking things everything is lightning quick.

I sure have, always used m.2 for my OS drive. I am currently toying with popping in my spare 256Evo SSD as a quick and easy scratch drive for tempory editing storage. then archive over to my spinners.

That Motherboard looks amazing. I haven't seen 8 dimm slots on a board since my old SuperMicro server board.

Looking at that Main-board closer, noticing the number of SATA ports and that it can handle RAID 5 and RAID 10...
If I swapped to that motherboard I could dump my Adaptech raid card,. which would mean finally getting back to a reasonable boot time...

Hmmm...

Thanks. If I'm going to buy something, might as well be something that will last. My last system has been trucking along around 6 years. My current monitor is 11 or 12 years old. The memory is overkill for probably nearly everyone, but I also run a bunch of virtual machines that could easily eat up 50-80GB depending on what I have going. Not photography related. Not a huge game player, so no need for those crazy $1000 video cards!
