SSD - 2.5" - SATA III - (240GB - 400GB)

SATA III 6Gb/s SSDs may no longer be the fastest around thanks to emerging PCIe SSDs, but they're the most cost-effective and are still easily fast enough for most users. You'll need a spare SATA 6Gb/s port to get the most from them, and a 2.5” capable drive bay – an adaptor may need to be bought, but most cases have at least one drive bay. Drives of these capacities can hold an operating system, many programs and a few games.
