Hard Drives - SSD
Solid-state drives are currently the fastest form of storage available, and can give your system a massive boost in application and OS load times, data transfer speeds and overall responsiveness. Their lightning speed comes from their flash memory chips, which unlike traditional hard drives have no moving parts. This makes them more reliable, smaller, lighter and less power hungry, but they can cost significantly more and have less capacity.
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. These drives are the highest capacity ones available, suitable for holding an operating system, as well as numerous programs and a healthy collection of media and games.

These are the Latest and Greatest of the SSD Family - PCIe SSDs are the current pinnacle of SSD performance Which are SSD HHHL (Half Height Half Length)/ FHHL (Full Height Half Length) AIC's (Add In Card) instead of going via the normal route of SATA use the motherboard PCIe Port , capable of reaching far greater speeds than SATA SSDs which are limited to 6Gb/s. The Higher PCIe Bandwidth Opens up these models to a much greater Speed and are aimed at larger desktop PCs High End Market since they come as single-slot PCIe expansion card. Ensure your motherboard has an appropriately sized slot spare with the Correct PCIe Bridge and Port Version to get the most from the performance.

This the Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) or M.2 as its now called M.2 replaced the older mSATA standard, The M.2 SSD Connects to your device via a M.2 Socket via either PCI Express using AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) which was the standard for older legacy operating systems, And the newer PCI Express using NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) controller variant designed to fully utilize the capability of high-speed PCI Express storage devices to perform many I/O (in/out) operations in parallel.
