I have a desktop with the motherboard above: https://www.amazon.com/Intel-Desktop-Motherboard-LGA1155-DDR3/dp/B00858CYDA/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics... Amazon.com: Intel Desktop Motherboard LGA1155 DDR3 1600 ATX - BOXDZ77RE-75K: Computers & Accessories
I would like to know if it is compatible with the Samsung SSD 850 Pro: http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/product/consumer/850pro/ Samsung SSD 850 PRO | Samsung V-NAND Consumer SSD | Samsung Semiconductor Global Website
This was highly rated after some research.
If not, can anyone suggest a highly a rated SSD? This will contain the OS (currently Windows 7 Pro, future Windows 10) and installed programs. There will be no data. I have other HD for that.
I prefer a retail version, not an OEM version. There is additional software and a better warranty.
If this is not the place to ask this question, where can I go?
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
This drive is indeed compatible with the RE motherboard - and is well-rated as well.
When you install the drive, make sure you have the latest available version of the BIOS installed as well,
