Which ssd can i put in my HP Pavilion Gaming system

HP Pavilion Gaming PC 690-0020
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello HP community

I recently purchased an HP Pavilion Gaming system model 690-0020

I want to add an SSD for my OS and games, but I don't know much about pcie/m.2 ssds and im not sure which exact slot is used for my system

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05970262

here is the link of my pc 

i just need to know if the ssds uses key M or key A as listed on the motherboard 

Links to purchase a compatible ssd would also be appreciated

@insanefire10,

Crucial shows a few  m.2 (Key M) that will work for your system.

@insanefire10,

It meets the requirements, NAND m.2 as shown here

Windows should show around 223GB for a 240GB SSD when formatted. Are you sure that is enough?

Just how are you going to do this?  https://www.easeus.com/partition-master/clone-larger-hdd-to-smaller-ssd.html

Hi again

I recently purchased an m.2 ssd and memory stick

the memory stick went in no problem and i now have 16gb total

The ssd didnt come with a screw to install it with

So i will need to buy my own screw

Do you know which screw will work with my HP desktop (pavilion 690-0020) so i can install the ssd?

Thanks
