Best SSD option for my Pavilion Desktop 570-p057cb

HP Recommended
Pavilion Desktop 570-p057cb
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Some of the games I play on my desktop seem to load fairly slow. I've upgrades the video card and added RAM, so now I believe it's time to add an SSD. From what I understand, this can help load times and resolve some game stuttering.

But, I'm having a hard time finding what SSD is compatible with my PC. Furthermore, which would be best.
My specs:
Pavilion Desktop 570-p057cb
Kaby Lake 82F2

i5-7400 @ 3GHz

Win 10

GTX 1060 3gb graphics card

16GB DDR4 RAM

@Cappaholic 

You have several issues.

1) That 16GB NVMe device is an Optane memory cache.

2) How much of your 2TB HD is in use ?   Answer this ASAP.

You can not change the storage without disabling the Optane first. Do it wrong, and you damage the OS and data. Once you get the Optane disabled, you can remove the Optane device.  That socket will support an NVMe SSD device.  An NVMe SSD is 5-6 times faster than your existing hard drive.

1. Are you talking about my HDD being Optane+ supported?
2. I have a 1.8TB HHD, and 1.46GB is currently in use.

 

I'm not looking to replace my 1.8GB HHD, but rather add an SSD. Unless of course I can install an SSD of comparable size. Some posts in this forum talk about a limitation of 250GB SSD on this MB.

I'm no stranger to tech, but SSDs are completely new to me.
