My situation in a broad aspect is as follows.
Is there a difference in *speed* between using a sata internal ssd vs a pci express slot ssd?
Would it be worth it to purchase a decent small sized pci-express ssd and swap out my small hdd with my external 1tb hd? And just use the ssd as a boot drive?
I am in Afghanistan and all I do is watch movies and tv shows on my laptop, but I am sick of having wires hanging all over the place, if I can just but the tb hdd inside my laptop and use the pci-express slot as my ssd boot drive, then in theory it make sense, and it should be alot faster than what my current hdd.
If I am wrong please let me know, as I am in the beginning stages of this, or if someone else has done this also help me out.
I heard you have to mod your bios for it to recognize the express slot as a boot device as well. Is this correct?
And is it worth it to get rid of the wires and sacrifice speed, or is there not a huge difference in speed between the internal and express cards..
Thanks for the help!
