SSD upgrade for HP omen desktop 870-244

HP Recommended
HP Omen 870-244
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Looking to add/upgrade RAM and an SSD to my HP Omen 870-244. I understand it has a Thimphu-K motherboard. For the SSD, can I use the open M.2 slot to install a "stick" based SSD like the WD 500GB M.2-2280, or am I better off with a SATA based option like the Samsung 860 EVO with an adapter cable? Which version will perform better?

 

Also considering upgrading the RAM from 16GB to 32GB - is it worth it with this motherboard and clock speeds (for gaming)?

Its specs

 

           https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05380412

 

1. STORAGE: It has 1TB of HDD now and it has one spare M.2 slot for storage (One M.2 socket 3, key M) on its motherboard. You should be able add M.2 NVMe SSD to your machine using

                      https://www.samsung.com/au/memory-storage/970-evo-nvme-m2-ssd/MZ-V7E2T0BW/

                      https://www.crucial.com/products/ssd/crucial-p2-ssd

           Or similar from reputable vendors.
        

It is much better to use M.2 slot and NVMe SSD drive, much faster.

 

2. RAM: It has 16GB now and supports up to 64GB (from its specs). You can upgrade to 32GB using the following compatible RAM (will run at 2133MHz as from its specs)

 

                    https://www.crucial.com/memory/ddr4/ct2k16g4dfd824a/ct10386647

         or       https://www.crucial.com/memory/ddr4/bls2k16g4d32aese/ct13986016

         or      https://www.crucial.com/memory/ddr4/bl2k16g26c16u4b/ct16794180

 

  It specs also says it supports 64GB but HP only tested with 32GB

 

Regards.
