Need help in SSD and RAM Upgrade

Deal Newbie

I have Acer Predator Helios 300 i5 7th Gen –
Looking to Upgrade RAM and SSD to have Super fast system. I don’t play games. But would like to have a very fast system.

1. I have bought this RAM – Crucial 16GB DDR4-2666 SODIMM – Is this compatible?

2. In terms of SSD, help me choose between

a. CT500P2SSD8 (Crucial P2 NVME M.2) –
b. WDS500G2B0C (WD Blue NVME M.2) –

Crucial model has Sequential Read and Write speed of UPTO 2300MB/s and 940MB/s whereas WD model has speeds of UPTO 2400 and 1750MB/s

On laptop description page they did not mentioned RAM clock speed (in MHZ). For RAM upgradation, check clock speed & CAS latency ratio of current. They should same for optimum performance. Here is guide to find out both 🔗

Next, NVMe storage. As per your description Western Digital Blue is the winner in sequential read-write claim. But, believe me in real life you won’t experience difference. So, my suggestion is to go with better deal. Don’t worry.

Be remeber to register product on official website for extended warranty, if any.

All the best 👍
