I have an MSI GE60, and I have some money lying around so I want to buy an mSATA drive for all of my boot files. I have included a picture of the motherboard of my laptop to double check that it is an mSATA slot and not a normal SSD. My question is, which one would be compatible with my laptop? Also can I run this mSATA along with my HDD? Lastly, does this one work? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The slot I am asking about is where it says SSD in white lettering

i have a msi gt60 with 3 msata drives in it with a the 1tb standard harddrive, so yes you can run a msata drive with the HDD.

yes the mushkin msata drive you linked will work just fine.

Thanks! In your opinion was it worth it to get the SSD? Like should I just save my 80 bucks or would the SSD make a huge impact?

My laptop came with one in it and I added the other two. But it seems to be faster then regular harddrive. So it's worth it in my eyes.
