Solved Samsung 840 Evo + TBGM-01 motherboard ? Tags: Samsung Storage Motherboards Evo Last response: August 28, 2013 12:17 PM in Storage Share ru_disa August 28, 2013 11:18:20 AM Hello, I'm thinking about buying an SSD drive, and the 840 Evo 250gb looks pretty attractive. I have an older motherboard, a TBGM-01, the one used on the FX series computers by Gateway. My question is: can I even install an 840 Evo on my motherboard? Do I have the right SATA ports? I'm not very literate in the topic, so any help or advice is very much appreciated!
