My new GIGABYTE GA-H97-Gaming 3 LGA 1150 Intel H97 motherboard has the SATA Express and the M.2 on it and i have no idea what they are for.I also just recently bought a SAMSUNG 840 EVO 120GB SSD and one WD Black series 1 TB. Where do i plug these two up at and what do the SATA Express and M.2 mean? My SSD will be what my OS and some games are on also.

I guess Google is broken where you live? :) 

M.2
SATA Express

In short, both are newer and faster methods to connect SSDs in computers.
