    Which M.2 ssd

    I have a Z170-P D3 which currently has a 256GB 2.5" ssd and want to upgrade to a 2TB m.2 2280. I know that it has Pcie 3.0 and the book says I have 1 x M.2 Socket 3 with M Key for both sata and pcie mode.
    Most of the drives I see listed are pcie 3.0 X 4. Is that what I am looking for? Any suggestions or help would be most appreciated.

    Hope This Is Useful , M Key Is The Notch On The Motherboard and The SSD Card , 2280 is length of Card , pcie 3.0 X 4. Should work , There Should Be A Screw On Motherboard to Install The SSD ,

    Thanks for the reply. My motherboard has ddr3 and most of the m.2 cards i am looking at say that they have "Built-in 2GB DDR4 DRAM and SLC caching accelerate burst performance and prevent slowdown during intensive workloads." Is this compatible? below is the link to one i am considering. Trying not to buy any more components that do not work with my system.
