Solved!

Is 256GB enough fro gaming? Should I use SATA or PCie for ssd? Which one is the ssd?

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm going to buy this laptop. It comes with a 256GB SSD. Is it enough for gaming? I might just put all games over 50gb on the HDD. Does the HP Omen use a SATA SSD or a PCIe SSD? Also, can someone send me a video of where the SSD is and how to remove it?

It comes with a 256GB SSD. Is it enough for gaming?  I prefer 512 GB, but if you don't install a lot of other apps the 256 GB should be fine.

 

I might just put all games over 50gb on the HDD.  Possible solution, but it will slow down the performance.

 

Does the HP Omen use a SATA SSD or a PCIe SSD?  (GNRC SSD256GB 2280 M2 PCIe3x4SS NVMeTLCPRT)  This information is taken from HP Partsurfer.

 

Also, can someone send me a video of where the SSD is and how to remove it?  Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide for the laptop.  In Chapter 5, Removal and replacement procedures for Customer Self-Repair parts, Page 33, is a photo of the M.2 SSD and instructions for removing it.

Possible solution, but it will slow down the performance. I'm pretty sure it will only slow down by 30% but I will follow your advice thank you

If your games are loaded onto the secondary HDD, only the loading times will slow down. The actual performance of the game itself will not be any different that if installed to SSD.
