Motherboard LGA1155 DDR3 1600 ATX; Compatible With Samsung SSD 850 PRO


I have a desktop with the motherboard above: 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: 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,
