Should I buy a MOBO that supports n.2 SSD and use n.2 rather than "standard SSD"?
Basically I'm looking to install one SSD for OS boot and any other "mission critical" purposes and i figure 256 GB should be enough. Could you guys please give me your opinion, since it would also influence the MOBO id go with. Lastly, I'm new to SSD could you guys please tell me which drive would be best. From homework I did i got:
Samsung 840 EVO 250 GB,,,,, SanDisk X210 ,,,, but those were not n.2.

And I've narrowed the boards to Asus or ASrock both 1150 and z97 chip set. (Obviously most have n.2 which does have potential down the line so I think its better to get it than not, BUT what do you think)
P.S. on Asus side is ROG the better option or TUF
Thanks a lot.
