Need to give your PC a boost?
One of the best things to do in these cases is to change your hard drive to an SSD (the other being to add RAM, but beyond 24 or 32 GB the return on investment decreases considerably in most of the cases.)
If your computer can be equipped with an M.2 SSD, take a look at the Lexar Professional NM800 Pro with heatsink.
Not sure if your PC supports M.2 SSDs? I recommend you to check the specs of your PC (especially its motherboard), or you can download and install CPU-Z and use this software to check the specs of your PC

Lexar is a brand I trust completely when it comes to my storage needs. Whether it’s SSDs or SD cards, I’m never disappointed with the quality, reliability, and performance.
The NM800 PRO is no exception.
Designed to support the PCIe Gen4x4 NVMe 1.4 standard, this drive is twice as fast as PCIe 3.0 SSDs and up to 12 times faster than SATA SSDs.
It’s a racehorse capable of hitting read speeds of up to 7500MB/s and write speeds of up to 6500MB/s. I tested the drive in a number of different conditions, and the advertised performance is on point.
This is a fast drive (although you should bear in mind that the 512GB version’s write speeds are limited to 3,500MB/s). The addition of a heatsink means the drive stays cool, which means it runs more reliably when pushed hard.
If you’re looking for a fast and reliable SSD to give your PC a boost, this drive won’t disappoint.
