I've created a part list so I have a visual of what I'm going to be upgrading my Gaming PC with over the next several months and I got this warning. "The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled."
I have fairly broad tech knowledge but I'm totally confused by what this means, I do know it has something to do with my motherboard and one of the M.2 Slots. Below I've listed the parts I believe could be of relevance to the problem. Could anyone please help me?
