     I would like to know what is the maximum RAM, SSD and m2 SSD  upgrade that can be made to my NITRO 5 AN515-55-763H (MODEL NO.: N20C1)
    and I need some recommendations on what to buy because I am confused and I don't want to buy something not fit on my laptop

    The AN515-55 has 2x slots for the RAM and can take a max of 32GB total (2x 16Gb max into each slot) the AN515-55 also comes with two types of CPU’s and they have different specs for RAM, the Intel Coffee Lake-H (i5-9300H or the i7-9750H) can take DDR4- 2400/2666MHz type RAM while the Intel Comet Lake-H (i5-9300H or the i7-10750H) can take DDR4- DDR4 2666/2933MHz 260 pin DDR4 SODIMM support DIMM voltage 1.2V.

    With the 2.5” SSD you can fit the SATA-3 6GB/sec types and with the M.2 SSD’s they are PCIe Gen.3x4 NVMe types. The best SSD’s of either 2.5” and/or M.2 PCIe 3x 4 NVMe in my opinion are the Samsung range as I’ve used them for over 4 years without having any problems and as a matter of a fact, I’m still using an old 2.5” 850 EVO that I’ve used every day for the last 4 years and it works perfectly. But and buying Samsung depends entirely on your budget as these drives are more expensive, also, do not use cheap 2.5” and/or M.2’s as they will not last and will give you problems and destroy valuable data. 

    To be specific, the max M.2 SSD that Acer fits OEM to the AN515-55 is the 1TBWDC N8SP4 SDBQNTY1T00-1014 or and if you want 512GB Acer fits the WDC N8SP4 SDBQNTY-512G-1014 but and be aware that the max capacity of SSD drives both 2.5” and M.2’s that you can fit into a Windows OS depends on the formatting rules of either MBR and/or GUID formats, so read up on that.

    Hi @Nsalih,

    Configure your laptop for maximum speed and massive storage with two slots for M. 2 PCIe SSDs1 and up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM.
