So im about to build a pc and im getting a asus hero xiii mobo.
https://rog.asus.com/dk/motherboards/rog-maximus/rog-maximus-xiii-hero-model/

It has slots for 4 m2 solid states 2 x 4 and 2 x 3 pcie.
So i was looking on a 250 GB 4.0 pcie samsung 980 pro for windows 10 soon 11
I dont install games on the windows drive, so its gona be open office and few other smaller programs and drivers.
That should be enough ? Or shoul di buy a 500 GB just for the lols.

Then im gona buy 1tb for games due to the 2 gb cost twice as much.

And for last im gona buy a 500 gb 970 evo plus for my own storage stuff.

So i still have 1 more slot but i think this would be more than enough
Correct me if im wrong or come with ur second opinion or tell me what other better brand to choose than samsung ?

I don't know if it'll be more than enough, I just run 1tb m.2 drive for everything and then have
several backup/clones on other m.2 drives....

make sure you get a 11xxx gen cpu...

Highly suggest that you use at least 500GB as your main drive and have all apps/games installed on your secondary drive.

My rigs are all running variations of Samsung. I have built other systems utilizing other brands and those are all still running fine. You are paying a bit of a premium going the Samsung route so do keep that in mind.
