Hello - I have an Omen 875-1022 desktop bought late last year. It came with a 1 TB SSD. I want to add more internal hard drive space. It has slots for one or two SATA drives and I believe it has a slot for a second SSD drive.
Is there room for a second SSD? Is it as simple as plugging in?
For the HDDs, any idea if 3.5 or 2.5"? Do I need to buy cables or anything. Sorry for basic questions.

@tekega , welcome to the forum.
Q: Is there room for a second SSD?
A: Here is the Motherboard Specifications page: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-by-hp-875-1000-obelisk-desktop-pc-series/25644598/model/28...
If you look at the section titled "Expansion slots" it shows the following: Two M.2 socket 3, key M (one for SSD card PCIe x4)
You can find numerous guides online to help with the installation.
Q: For the HDDs, any idea if 3.5 or 2.5"? Do I need to buy cables or anything.
A: I believe that the HDD's will be 3.5". This is standard for desktops. You will need a SATA power and data cable. You can check the power supply unit (PSU) to see if there is a spare power cable, but you will most likely have to buy the data cable.
