  3. The ssd will work fine in the PC if it's reformatted you can't move your windows or whatever OS over from the laptop like that and if it is windows it's more than likely an OEM version and will refuse to work with another motherboard. you will more than likely need a new OS
  4. If you can't go over £400 then
