I want to upgrade my internal storage to download more games without having to use a lot of money. I would like to buy a 1 TB SSD and it's just confusing to know which ones are compatible or not.

    You can do what i do:
    I have a 512 SSD and 1 TB HDD. HDD is for videos and docs n such, so no games.
    512 GB SSD had 120 GB for windows partition, and rest for games.
    I also got myself a 240 GB SSD (Inland Professional SATA 600 SSD) and connected it via USB 3 adapter. Speeds are pretty good, and i can install games directly onto it. You can get an Inland Professional one like this for very cheap. I barely spent over 30 for this. Also, if needed, I could always swap my SSD to the HDD slot and use it within laptop.

    Go to microcenter.com and search for below - it is 512 GB and under $50. Put another $10 and a get a USB adapter case for it so you can use it on USB 3 port.

    USB adapter case is only to use it connected to USB port. If you are installing in inside your laptop, you wouldn't need the adapter. Remember, this drive goes into SATA slot, not the M.2 slot.
