    Can you install either a SATA or PCI-E SSD in the m.2 slots?

    I know pcie is faster but I can get a lot more storage for the money with sata.

    Some said
    Thanks! It's a high probability that it's a 951, since is was used in earlier iterations. But I've also heard that it's a Toshiba drive, an OEM version of the XG3. I'm still unsure of which one.

    Unless you have Gsync, or optimus disabled in the bios. that is all you will see in Nvidia control panel because the Intel GPU is driving the display

    Why dont you wait for 960 series to come up? New EVOs are cheaper and faster than 950/951pro... Just my 2 cents

    What? I wasn't aware that they were already released! Thanks for the heads up! Look at the 960 Evo's speed, that's just, what?! What are the key differences between the 960 evo and 960 pro, other than their speeds?

    That didn't really say if you could use an m.2 sata in place of the pcie. He specifically stated that he used the same model Dell uses.
