Hi guys, so its going to be my first pc build and I am kind of a newbie to this website. Here are some questions
Is my build OKAY?
With the list, there is a compatibility issue which states 'The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6Gb/s ports are disabled'. Will I be okay with this?
Stupid question but does the 950 Samsung SSD hold 256gb of memory. It is just so small, so I'm sceptical.
when choosing a RAM. the most important aspect is its compatibility with the motherboard right? so if the mother board is DDR4 the ram should also be DDR4. I ask this because, I see other RAM sticks which are 16gb and seem cheaper.
Any advice for a first time build?
PLEASE REPLY SOON.
I will be buying the parts in the current week.
