NVMe looks great but my old mobo doesn't support PCI-e 3.0 and has only a single PCI-e 1X 2.0 slot available. I think SATA3 would do better than this. I'll wait for the next generation of machine before I worry about NVMe.
In the meantime I can enjoy the boost I get from a SATA3 SSD.

Being a confirmed cheapskate, I tend to buy at the low end for SSD's. Even some
of the older designs are a quantum improvement over hard drives. I just bought
one recently that has something like 500GB plus, both up and down. I think it's
a 128GB drive. I got it for like 50 dollars, new in box. Think it's a Drevo... I'll
look when I get back to Casa Betty...

The higher end SSDs cost about the same. I just pay $99 for the 256gb samsung ssd. I was referring to the ones that are like $30-40 as there are a bunch of unknown brands of SSDs out there that are really slow to write to.

Yep, I've seen them, and have a couple. My newest (Drevo 128G) is
500M/560M, something like that. I thought at least that one is pretty
fast...

Yeah, that is pretty fast.
