NVME vs SATA 2019

I'm going to "upgrade" my old 3tb enterprise HGST harddrive with a SSD, hard drives are not fast enough for games today.
However, is NVME performance worth the price difference? Roughly 80 eur from amazon when going from 1tb 860 to 1tb 970.
What do you think?

Hi,
Not really 2.5" ssd's are still a better value and perform just fine for storage of games to run games on.
If you move large files around a lot m.2 might be worth it.

Holidays might have some okay m.2 sells never know.

For games a normal SSD is fine

Very few games see a difference between PCIE and Sata,

i only see a difference between my NVME raid and my SSD raid in large transfers. (vrooom vrooooom!)

otherwise, you'd need a stop watch.

There is no difference between a SATA SSD and NVME in a consumer scenario as most of our workload is single thread. There is barely any difference between an SSD and mechanical drives when it comes to game load times so I don't think there's a point in getting an NVME. However, if you are moving a large number of files and or huge files then an NVME shines. Otherwise get what's cheaper.
